Home Research About




I am a research assistant at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington D.C., in the Trade and Financial Studies section, part of the Division of International Finance.

In June 2022, I graduated from UCLA, with a degree in Mathematics/Economics, summa cum laude, and a Specialization in Computing. At graduation, I was given the Outstanding Student in Mathematics/Economics award.

My past research positions have been with PhD student Zhihao Xu and with faculty members Melanie Wasserman (UCLA Anderson), Michela Giorcelli (UCLA), Rosa Matzkin (UCLA), and Martha Bailey (UCLA). In the summer of 2021, I interned at the Federal Reserve Board, where I worked in the Division of International Finance, under the supervision of Dario Caldara and Anna Lipinska.

I have conducted research in applied microeconomics, economic history, monetary economics, and international trade. I have worked on projects studying Head Start and currency crises in developing countries, among others.

In my free time, I love to cook and play board games.
