I am a post-doctoral fellow at Stanford, Department of Economics through the IDEAL Provostial Fellowship. In July 2025, I will join UC Berkeley, Haas School of Business as an Assistant Professor.

I study questions in labor and urban economics by applying methods from spatial economics and insights from economic history. My research focuses on the causes and consequences of inequality in cities and often employs large-scale administrative datasets for the United States. 

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from MIT  in 2024 and my B.A. in Economics and B.S. in Applied Mathematics from Stanford in 2018
