Bio and CV

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Business Economics program at Harvard. I work on topics in International Trade, Macroeconomics, and Industrial Organization.

My current research uses US census microdata to identify economies of scope and the non-rivalry of intangible inputs (i.e. R&D, Engineering, and IT) in the manufacturing sector. I’m particularly interested in the implications of these microeconomic properties for the aggregate propagation of shocks (i.e. tariffs) across industries, and as drivers of structural transformation in the economy. 

I received my bachelor's degree from Princeton University in 2013, where I majored in Economics.

My interest in all things international is inspired by my experiences growing up in Germany, Finland, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
