I am a 5th year PhD candidate in the Joint Economics and Finance PhD program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (jointly housed in the Economics and Finance Department). Prior to my studies at Wisconsin, I was an Economist/Analyst with over three years experience in a research division of the Bank of Canada (CV). My research examines how capital market frictions interact with firm heterogeneity to affect macroeconomic outcomes such as firm concentration, growth and the effectiveness of monetary policy. A particular emphasis of my dissertation is on the informational and strategic considerations of innovation-based (i.e. intangible) firms and their influence on startup dynamics.
