About Me

I am a Mellon Fellow for the 2023-2024 academic year and a Ph.D. Student in the Department of Economics at the University of Pittsburgh. I am affiliated with the Behavioral Economics Design Initiative (BEDI) at the University of Pittsburgh and the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics (CHIBE) at the University of Pennsylvania. I am a past recipient of the University of Pittsburgh's K. Leroy Irvis Fellowship. I am a U.S. and Austrian dual-citizen and a member of  the American and European Economic Associations.

I previously worked as a research assistant at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in Washington, D.C.  and volunteered as a tax preparer and high school math tutor. I graduated from Swarthmore College with honors in economics and psychology in 2017.

In my free time, I sing as a member of the Mendelssohn Choir (the choir of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra), run competitively, and play chess. I recently completed the Philadelphia half- and Pittsburgh full- marathons. I was a singer in the Cathedral Choral Society on a recording of Alexander Kastalsky's Requiem for Fallen Brothers  which was nominated for a 2021 GRAMMY for Best Choral Performance.
