Before starting graduate school, I interned in the Global Stock Selection team at AQR Capital Management and Special Situations team at Forefront Capital Management (Mumbai, India).

June 2021: I was recently awarded the Yiran Fan Memorial Prize, generously established by Lars Hansen and Grace Tsiang in memory of Yiran Fan and his contributions to the Chicago Booth community. Please take a moment to commemorate Yiran's kind and generous spirit and his devotion to bringing fellow students, young researchers, and faculty as companions in learning.
