About Me

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at the University of Florida. My research interests are in the fields of Applied Microeconomics with applications in consumer sentiment and behavior, Industrial Organization, Antitrust, and Intellectual Property Rights.

My current research agenda centers on analyzing the effect of consumer economic expectations on consumption behavior. Additionally, I study the anticompetitive effects of horizontal mergers and appropriability issues concerning method-of-use patents.

I am a graduate instructor for intermediate microeconomics and recipient of the 2021 Larry Kenny Graduate Student Teaching Award. I will graduate with my Ph.D. in Spring 2022.

I am currently on the job market and am available for interviews, including at the ASSA 2022 Annual Meeting on January 7-9, 2022.
