Hello! I am a PhD candidate at Cornell University’s Dyson School. My research interests are in Environmental and Resource Economics and Industrial Organization.

I will join the Institute of Economics and Econometrics at the University of Geneva as a postdoctoral researcher during the Fall 2021 term. In Spring 2022, I will join the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University as an Assistant Professor.
