About me

I am an incoming Ph.D. student in the Decision, Risk, and Operations division of Columbia Business School. I received my M.A. from the University of Chicago where I studied economics and mathematics. Before starting at Columbia, I was an NBER Term Research Assistant and Postgraduate Visiting Fellow at Yale University’s Economics Department.

My research interests lie broadly at the intersection of statistical inference and decision-making. I am particularly interested in nonparametric inference with a view towards causal identification in nonstandard settings. To this end, my recent work considers the estimation of infinite-dimensional parameters in graphical models.
