I am currently a PhD Candidate in the Joint Program in Financial Economics at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics.


My research lies at the intersection of empirical asset pricing and political economy, with a focus on municipal debt markets. In my job market paper, "Public Pensions and State Government Borrowing Costs," I explore what U.S. state government bond prices imply about the relative recovery rates of pensioners and debtholders in a state default.


I will be available for interviews at the 2020 ASSA meetings in San Diego.
