I am a job market candidate in household finance from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business. My advisor is Ulrike Malmendier and my committee members are Chris Palmer, Chris Walters, and Terrance Odean. 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.
I am on the job market in 2018-19 and available for interviews at the 2019 ASSA Meetings in Atlanta.
