About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Climate and Sustainability Impact Lab at the Harvard Business School. I received my PhD in Finance (2023) at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley.

My research interests are sustainable finance and corporate social responsibility, with links to financial intermediation, corporate finance, and banking

My current research focuses on the interplay between environmental regulations and firm pollution, and their impact on mutual funds’ portfolio choices, shareholder wealth, and corporate philanthropy. 

My references are Ulrike Malmendier, Ross Levine, Christine Parlour, and Johan Walden.
