I am a PhD economist at Stanford University. My fields are industrial organisation, behavioural and experimental economics. I'm interested in how people access and process information, particularly with respect to healthcare decisions. Current projects include work on education and the digital divide in internet access, political speech on social media, and the welfare consequences of pharmaceutical innovation.

In 2016, I received a Double First in Economics from the University of Cambridge, where I researched radicalization in democratic systems. After graduating from Cambridge, I worked for UNICEF in New York, before moving to Caltech as a pre-doctoral fellow in the Camerer Lab. I graduated with an MPhil in Economics (Distinction) at Nuffield College, Oxford, in 2019. While at Oxford, I worked for Evidence for Policy Design (Harvard University) in London, UK, and New Delhi, India, focusing on female labour force participation.
