I'm a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at George Mason University and a PhD fellow at the Mercatus Center and a Graduate Fellow at the F.A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics.

My work, broadly speaking, focuses on the intersection of monetary economics and political economics. My research has been published in Explorations in Economic History and the Journal of Private Enterprise.
