I am a first-year Ph.D. student at Harvard University studying Business Economics, a joint degree that combines the Harvard Economics Ph.D. program with support from Harvard Business School. Previously, I worked as a research analyst in U.S. Economics at Goldman Sachs.

My research interests are in monetary policy and finance. I study how monetary policy transmits through the financial system to affect lending, inflation, and unemployment. I am also interested in how changes to financial regulation can make monetary policy more effective.
