I am a PhD candidate in Finance at UBC Sauder School of Business.
I am on the 2022-2023 academic job market.
I research the impacts of AI on information production and agency conflicts in human-intermediated markets and finance professionals.
My corporate finance papers focus on firm intangibles, such as corporate culture, non-pecuniary aspects of jobs, and intellectual property.
