My Research

I am an economist at the UC Berkeley Gilbert Center, and my primary field is industrial organization. I study how firms collect and use data and its implication on pricing and other competitive strategies, consumer welfare, and data privacy regulations. My research focuses on real-world industries with imperfect competition and information or incentive problems, such as insurance and e-commerce.
 
I often work with large datasets from independent collaborations with firms. In my research, I develop formal analytical models that allow me to quantify complex but empirically important features of consumer demand and firm conduct.
 
I received my Ph.D. in Business Economics from Harvard University in 2019.
