I am a first-year graduate student at UC Berkeley in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. Previously, I earned a B.S. in Mathematics and Economics at the University of Minnesota. During my undergrad, I spent a year as a visiting student at Harvard University and worked as a research assistant for professors at both schools.
