Research Interest: It was while reading about the Treaty of Versailles that I became fascinated by the wisdom and creativity of John Maynard Keynes. He wanted to create a world of plenty, where people could pursue their passions, and that philosophy has influenced me ever since. When I read about the Great Depression, I began to understand how effective public policy can nudge the world towards better outcomes. I realized that I am fascinated by the confluence of history, economics, and public policy and that I wanted to be involved in research that combines these interests.
Hobbies: I am a National Master in chess. It has been my passion since I was a kid.
Hometown: Gainesville, Florida
