University of Toronto - Economics

I am a PhD student in Economics in my 3rd year at the University of Toronto interested interested in improving our understanding of economic policymaking. My second-year-paper focused on studying wealth inequality in Canada.

In addition to research, I have experience as a TA in numerous courses and have worked as a research assistant. I also have worked on the Finances of the Nation project, creating novel datasets and visualization tools for the Canadian public finance community. In my spare time, I enjoy watching sports, exploring craft beer and biking and hiking adventures.
