I am a PhD candidate in Economics at Harvard University, specializing in Industrial Organization.

My work leverages theory, empirics and modern computation to better understand the equilibrium implications of policies and proposals involving information revelation, risk sharing and commitment. My work spans a number of policy settings, including public procurement, pharmaceutical pricing and auto-insurance.
