Education and Research

I am a fourth year PhD student in the economics department at the University of Oregon. My research focuses on rational inattention, considering boundedly rational agents who cannot perfectly track economic conditions and must choose what to pay attention to. I apply these theoretical tools along with large-dimensional econometric tools (for example dynamic factor models) to explain the behavior of price movements at the firm, sector, and aggregate levels.
