Welcome to my website! I am a PhD Candidate at Yale University studying comparative political economy. Currently, I am a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Tokyo Institute of Social Science and a Research Associate at the Waseda University Institute of Political Economy.
My research focuses on the ways individuals, businesses, and interest groups use politics for private gain. Examples include corruption and regulatory capture. I am also interested in the use of data science tools and methods of causal inference in political economy research. My research has been published in the American Political Science Review and British Journal of Political Science, among other outlets.
Prior to Yale, I worked as a Data Scientist for TrueCar, Inc., where I developed forecasting models to predict automotive residual values and sales volumes in the US and Canada. Before that, I analyzed regulatory matters that raised risks of antitrust violations as an economic consultant at Compass Lexecon.
