Background, Interests & Teaching

My goal is to improve our understanding of the connection between voting, economic outcomes, public opinion, and the media through rigorous research.

Before coming to NYU, I have worked on projects related to discrimination, inclusive capitalism, and behavioral economics. Most of these projects were done at MIT and at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

Teaching | As a Data Fellow at NYU, I have advised undergraduate students on research design, tidying data, and interpreting empirical results. My teaching experience is in three fields:


MBA | University of Chicago, 2014
BA, Economics | Harvard University, 2009
