About Me

Hello! I am a PhD candidate at The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, where I am fortunate to be advised by Hummy Song

My research broadly focuses on problems in healthcare operations faced by a range of stakeholders, including startups, health systems, and governmental agencies, both in the US and abroad.  I am particularly interested in designing and evaluating data-driven solutions to enhance the social sustainability of service systems and their workforce. 

Prior to  my doctoral studies, I was a predoctoral fellow at the Tobin Center for Economic Policy at Yale University. I completed my B.S. in Economics with a minor in math at The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
