Math & Econ @ Haverford College  •  Incoming Research Intern @ Federal Reserve Board



I am an incoming summer research intern at the Federal Reserve Board. I currently study mathematics and economics at Haverford College.

My academic interests include macroeconomic and financial research—I am specifically curious about monetary economics and central banking. My work has been published in a leading industry magazine—Central Banking—and I am currently co-authoring a conference paper on state-level variations in covid reopening procedures.

I was previously a research assistant for Professor Carola Binder, a prominent expert in monetary policy and inflation expectations, contributing to her forthcoming book about price controls and to quantitative projects involving NGDP expectations and bias in central bank communications. I am proficient in Stata, R, Mathematica, and LaTeX, and have experience with Python, Java, SQL, MATLAB, and HTML. I speak French with a working proficiency.

At Haverford, I lead two clubs: the Economics Research Club and the Problem Solving Group (Math Club). I also play for the varsity cricket team. After college, I plan on pursuing a Ph.D. in economics.
