News: we are organizing the 2023 SSRC Workshop on the Economics of Social Media! The workshop will take place on July 22 at NYU.

Submit your papers by Feb 28.

I received my PhD in Economics from New York University. I am a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at Columbia University and ETH Zürich, and will be joining the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as an Assistant Professor in the fall of 2023.

I am also an affiliate of the SSRC Digital Platforms Initiative and NYU Center for Social Media and Politics.

I study media and information technologies, with a focus on their relationship to diversity and inequality. Much of my work involves original data collection including archival research or field experiments.

My CV is here.
