I am a PhD Candidate in the Economics department at the University of California, Davis. Beginning Fall 2022, I will be joining the Federal Trade Commission as an Economist.

My areas of research are Public Economics and Applied Microeconomics. I am also interested in household finance and the interaction between public health and nutrition. My job market paper examines the impact of the Earned Income Tax Credit on household food expenditures.
