About Me

I am a PhD candidate in Finance at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley. I am on the 2022-2023 job market.

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.
