I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of Connecticut. My primary research interest is high-dimensional econometrics with a focus on providing econometric and empirical analysis on economic theories and stories.  My other interests include applications of the machine learning methods in causal inference and applied microeconomics. Prior to joining the Ph.D. program at Uconn, I have earned an M.S. in Finance and M.S. in Applied Economics from the Johns Hopkins University.
