I am an economics PhD student at MIT and an alum of the University of Chicago, where I studied math, economics, and Chinese. I previously worked as an economist at Uber under John A. List and as a quantitative researcher at AQR Capital Management.
My interests include monetary economics, macroeconomic growth, asset pricing, and mechanism design.
