I am a research assistant at the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics, University of Chicago and the Becker Friedman Institute. I work with Professor Manasi Deshpande and her collaborators.

My broad research interests are in the field of public and labor economics. In particular, I am interested in government assistance programs, intergenerational mobility, and subjective well-beings.

I love to travel and learn Cantonese.
