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, Game Theory and Economics of Information. I use lab experiments to investigate behavior in social and strategic settings in environments with perfect and incomplete information. I will be on the job market this year.

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