About me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Agricultural & Applied Economics Department at UW-Madison.

My research interests have revolved around the field of Industrial Organization and Applied Microeconomics. Currently I address questions that may guide policy makers considering issues in antitrust and consumer protection law and policy, and that seek to promote the adoption of new technologies.
