I am a fifth year PhD candidate at the Leeds School of Business, University of Colorado Boulder. My research interests include:

  • Real Estate Economics
  • Credit Markets
  • Signaling Games

As an applied theorist, I develop mathematical models to explain empirical facts and to quantify economic phenomena.

I have taught Corporate Finance and Introductory Finance at the University of Colorado Boulder.
