I’m a first-year MS in Applied Economics student at the University of San Francisco. Prior to grad school, I have worked on data science at Mahindra Susten, SugarBox and Happy Loans, solar finance at Sol Systems and energy efficiency at the Sierra Club. I studied Economics at the University of Maryland.
We live in a unique time where big data allows us to test economic theory irl. I’m particularly interested in the intersection of behavioral economics, market design and big data.
Some questions I’m thinking about right now:
- How does foreign ownership affect real estate prices?
- Do words of encouragement from strangers have an impact on school performance for children?
- How do you scale financial inclusion in an economy where people lack formal financial backgrounds?
Other interests: I play the sitar and am always looking for people to jam with. Sometimes, I also blog about: data science and beauty. I love networking and will often attend & speak at events. Come say hi if you’re attending any of the future events I’ll be at!
