Welcome! I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at Purdue University. My research focuses on economic geography, i.e., spatial variation in economic activity, and international trade, with an emphasis on local economic development policies.

Before coming to Purdue, I graduated from Vanderbilt University with a BA in Economics. I have also worked as a Research Analyst (Short Term Consultant) at the World Bank.

When I am not in my office, I enjoy taking in nature while running or hiking. I also love to travel, especially when I get a chance to scuba dive or ski!
