I am a 6th year PhD Candidate interested in using economic theory and applied econometrics to study consumer behavior. My research interests lie broadly in industrial organization, applied econometrics, and quantitative marketing. Specifically, I have conducted economic research in sports and entertainment as well as consumer purchasing and voting behavior. Some of my published research has examined consumer responses to the Berkeley Sugar-Sweetened Beverage proposition and Proposition 37 in the 2012 California election that aimed to label all genetically-modified foods. I will be on the job market during the 2020-21 academic year.
