I am a PhD candidate in history at Princeton University. My research interests lie in twentieth-century financial history, central banking, business history, and economic thought in the United States and Europe. A recent article of mine was published in the Financial History Review and can be viewed here.
My dissertation-in-progress examines the role of economists in shaping monetary policies and reforming central banks throughout the Great Depression. I plan to explore historic perceptions of unemployment and inflation among contemporary academic economists, as well as the implications for central-bank cooperation. This research has been financially supported by the Julis-Rabinowitz Center for Public Policy and Finance, the Centre for History and Economics, and the Institut für Weltwirtschaft.
Originally from Massachusetts, I received a BA in History and in Economics from Vanderbilt University and also studied abroad at the London School of Economics. Prior to arriving at Princeton, I worked as a Business Analyst at Visa in San Francisco, CA and as a Research Assistant at the Center for Financial Stability.
