I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of California, Berkeley and a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. My research combines behavioral economics and applied microeconomics, with a particular focus on self-control issues and bounded rationality. My work uses a combination of theory, surveys, and both field and lab experiments.
Prior to graduate school, I was a research assistant at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC. I hold a B.S. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN.
I am currently on the job market and I am exclusively pursuing private sector opportunities as an Economist or Data/Applied Scientist. I have excellent training in causal inference and designing/implementing experiments and surveys. I have conducted research in academia, and both the public and private sector, and have communicated research findings to parties with diverse backgrounds and technical expertise.
