My research is in industrial organization and applied microeconomics. In particular, I study the effects of regulation and market structure on firms' pricing and product line decisions. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Michigan in 2017. I also received my B.S. in Mathematics (2009) and M.A. in Economics (2012) from the University of Michigan.
