My research interests broadly lie in asset pricing with an emphasis on market microstructure, information economics, and asset management. Specifically, I explore the process of price formation in the capital markets and attempt to understand the information acquisition and trading behavior of investors with differential objectives and access to information. I am particularly interested in the effects of technological innovations in the asset management sector on financial market quality and portfolio allocation. In one of my projects, I theoretically document and provide supportive empirical evidence for a novel driver of passive investing: falling costs to fundamental information. In other ongoing work, I study the implications of quantitative mutual funds and exchange traded products to market quality.

Prior to pursuing my Ph.D., I spent over six years at Citadel and Millennium as a fundamental equity investor focusing on the energy industry. In my free time I enjoy watching and playing soccer, traveling, and spending time with family.
