Position Title
Ph.D. Candidate - Public Economics


I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of California, Davis. My focus is on public policy evaluations, specifically in the domains of public funding allocations.

My current research centers on federal transfer programs in the United States. This involves studying take-up behaviors, variations in program implementation among states, and states' fiscal responses to federal incentives. I'm preparing to expand my research to encompass a wider array of public policies. In the upcoming 2023-2024 academic year, I'll be actively seeking opportunities within the job market.
