About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the Joint Economics and Finance PhD program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (jointly housed in the Economics and Finance Department). I will be on the job-market during the 2021-2022 academic year. Prior to my studies at Wisconsin, I was an Economist/Analyst 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 the rate of new startup entry and IPOs, the effectiveness of monetary policy implementation and aggregate innovation / growth. A particular emphasis of my dissertation is on the informational and strategic considerations of innovation-based (i.e. intangible) assets and their influence on startup dynamics.
