About I am a PhD student in Education Policy at Michigan State University studying under Scott Imberman. My research interests are primarily in the economics of higher education, specifically focusing on the role of student services in higher ed. In addition, I also study demand as well as quality of educational institutions. Prior to entering my graduate program, I worked at the Department of Justice Antitrust Division for three years. There, I worked as a statistician evaluating the competitive effects of education, telecommunication, healthcare, and tech mergers. Before that, I studied Middle Eastern and North African Studies at Northwestern University, and I also minored in Economics and Math.
