PhD Student in Economics at Harvard
My research seeks to understand how economic institutions can be designed to better reflect the preferences and values of the people they affect. I am also interested in methodological questions raised by contemporary economic theory and practice––for example, I have written on economists' roles in redesigning public school allocation algorithms and FCC spectrum auctions, and on the use of big data in economic research. You can read more about my research here.
I also write poems. My first collection will be published by Ecco/HarperCollins next year. My poems have recently appeared in London Review of Books, The New Yorker, New Statesman, Boston Review, PEN America, Lana Turner, and elsewhere. My writing about poetry has appeared in BOMB and Prac Crit.
I hold degrees from Harvard (AB) and Cambridge (MPhil).
