I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics at the University of Chicago, where I also completed my PhD in 2023.

My research interest includes industrial organization, applied microeconomics, and the economics of education. I am broadly interested in how regulation affects the organization of education markets and its consequences on the performance of students and the reduction of inequality.
