I am a doctoral job market candidate at the Department of Economics, Miami Herbert Business School.  


In my thesis work I aspire to predict economic indicators based on social media behaviors, studying news media impacts and user-generated content network effects. Through data mining techniques, my study attempts to fill the gaps between social media-based forecasting and dynamics of information diffusion through social networks. Prior to my doctoral studies at the University of Miami, I earned a BA in Chemistry from Earlham College and worked on a medical device project design in the field of ophthalmic devices (smart contact lenses) at Johnson & Johnson Vision  Care.  

I will be available for interviews at the January 2020 ASSA meeting in San Diego, CA.  

Research Interests:

Applied Econometrics, Big Data Analytics, Behavioral Economics, Political Economy, Financial Economics, Macroeconomic Expectations, Economics of Digitization, Economics of the News Media, Social Networks, Predictive Modeling.
