I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. My research interests are in International Trade and Environmental Economics, with a focus on the consequences of international trade in waste across countries. I also study topics on the interplay between regulation and international trade.

I will join the Department of Economics at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2022.
