I am a Pre-doctoral Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research, working with Heidi Williams.  In Fall 2024, I will be starting a Ph.D. in Economics at Stanford University.  I am interested in the economics of science and innovation, especially questions related to productivity and research commercialization. In 2022, I graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Public Policy.
