Welcome to my webpage!

I am an applied microeconomist working on empirical industrial organization and health economics. My recent work examines competitive strategy and regulations in pharmaceutical markets, sub-baccalaureate education, and automobile industries.

I am an Assistant Professor of Strategy and Donald P. Jacobs Scholar at the Kellogg School of Management. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Stanford University in June 2022.
