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 of the questions I’m thinking about right now:
- How does market design on social media affect real estate prices?
- Why aren’t more women working in tech? I am trying to understand this problem as Director of Women Who Code, Mumbai.
- How do you scale financial inclusion in a system that lacks formal financial history data?
