Hello! I am a 5th year Ph.D. candidate in economics at the University of British Columbia. My current research spans a range of public economics topics including business taxation, unemployment insurance, low-income supports, and income inequality. I focus on research that can help improve the design and implementation of taxation and social insurance systems to further both fairness and efficiency objectives.

I will be on the job market in 2020/21.
