PhD Candidate, Department of Economics

The Ohio State University


I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Economics at The Ohio State University. My research interests lie in the intersection between Experimental Economics and Economics of Information. More specifically, I am interested in understanding how access to information plays a role in economic decision making under various environments of uncertainty. My work focuses on developing and testing models of strategic decision making under uncertainty in the lab.

On the side, I am an avid reader (mainly enjoying works of fiction, especially Sci-Fi), a tech enthusiast and a beginner violinist.
