Welcome to my website! I am on the job market in 2020-21, and will be available for interviews at the FMA 2020, CICE 2020, and ASSA 2021 meetings.

I work on a wide range of applied microeconomics issues. A unifying theme of my research has been using machine learning techniques, modern econometric methods for causal inference, and novel data and quasi-experimental settings to answer policy-relevant questions including:

  • factors that shape economics agents' processing of financial information
  • the consequences of economics agents' information processing costs on corporate actions
  • CEO partisanship and management forecasts
