About

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Calgary in 2022.

My research is policy-related and involves the analysis of environmental regulation, transportation, product quality, productivity, innovation, international trade, firm competitiveness, markups, misallocation, labor, financial constraints, and market competition by exploiting various big datasets and multiple software programs.
