About Me

I will be starting a postdoctoral fellowship in household finance at the NBER for the academic year 2019-2020 and then will join the McIntire School of Commerce as an assistant professor of finance in 2020. I received my PhD in finance from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business. Before Berkeley, I worked in the Bank of Canada's Regulatory Policy Division and did my undergraduate degree at McGill University in Economics.

My research concerns household finance in the consumer credit and education markets and uses. Specifically, my job market paper exploits two unique natural experiments in Chile to examine whether standardization and disclosure regulations help improve consumer delinquency and default outcomes. A paper on a different Chilean regulation combines structural and empirical methods to estimate a cognitive cost parameter.
