About me

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Accounting at the London School of Economics. I received a PhD in Accounting from Stanford University in 2017. Prior to that, I worked as a research assistant at the Federal Reserve Board. I graduated from Yale University in 2011 with a BS in Applied Mathematics and a BA in Economics.

My research interests span non-financial misconduct, ESG issues, political connections (especially subsidies), and auditing. I employ both analytical and empirical methods.

You can find my official LSE webpage here.
