Ph.D. Candidate in Economics


I am a Ph.D. Candidate in economics at the Interdisciplinary Center for Economic Science at George Mason University. I am also a Mercatus Center PhD Fellow.


My research integrates behavioral economics with empirical methods to study topics on gender, and environmental and financial decision making. My primary research focuses on investigating gender differences in economic decision making using lab and online experiments and aims to help design effective policies that can mitigate the different labor market outcomes of men and women.
