I’m a student at Stanford University pursuing a degree in Economics and a minor in Global Studies. I'm interested in economic policy, international affairs, and social change. I'm always looking for new ways to approach research and improve policymaking, especially through applications of new technologies. I enjoy working on projects with impact that involve research as well as gathering and analyzing data.
