Welcome to my website! I will join Stanford GSB as an Assistant Professor of Finance in July 2024.

My research focuses on how technology and the emergence of nonbank intermediaries are changing the banking landscape, and the implications for financial stability, competition, and consumer welfare. I enjoy combining novel data sets, empirical analysis, and tools from IO in order to shed light on under-explored dimensions of financial intermediation.

I received a Ph.D. in Finance from Columbia Business School in 2024. Prior to my doctoral studies, in 2018 I received an Honors BSc in Economics and Mathematics from the University of Toronto with high distinction.
