I am a Ph.D. Candidate at UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business in the Management of Organizations Group.
My research focuses on gender inequality in organizations. I study how gender stereotypes impact women’s careers, and how gender roles and beliefs about gender roles constrain women. Further, I’m interested in how individuals reinforce the current gender system. Throughout my research, I use a multi-method approach including experiments, archival, and qualitative data.
I received my B.S. in Economics and B.A. in Psychology from Carnegie Mellon University. Before attending UC Berkeley, I was a Consultant at Deloitte & Touche in Cyber Risk Services and I specialized in threat intelligence.
I am on the 2023-2024 academic job market for assistant faculty and post-doc positions!
