Welcome to my website
I am an economics Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My research focuses on the formulation of nonparametric quantitative methods and the applications of these methods in microeconometrics. More specifically, my job market paper is on the estimation and inference of densities subject to shape constraints. The research tab also includes a paper on a nonparametric estimator of the mode of a dependent variable conditional on covariates, or a modal regression.
I am currently on the job market and I will be attending the AEA/ASSA meeting in Atlanta in January, 2019.
