I am a PhD Candidate in Political Science with a Designated Emphasis in Computational and Data Science and Engineering at UC Berkeley. I am currently a NSF Graduate Research Fellow and previously a Berkeley Empirical Legal Studies (BELS) Graduate Fellow.

My dissertation examines how 19th century public land laws impacted the long-run development of the American political economy. It also adapts modern deep learning methods to the problem of inferring causal impacts of policy interventions on observational time-series data.
