About Me

I am a fifth year PhD student in the Accounting Department at the University of Texas.  I am interested in using math and statistics to understand how accounting enables society to function efficiently.  I like playing with simulations, formal models, and real world data.

I enjoy thinking about how the systematic collection, organization, and use of information can make commerce more efficient.

Before entering the PhD program at UT-Austin, I studied math and statistics at the University of Chicago.  When I’m not thinking about accounting, I like to cook, go to the lake, and watch anything with Tina Fey in it.
