I am a Ph.D. student in the MIT Economics Department. My current research studies the formation of supply chains and production networks. I have also published work on the effect of social media sentiment on asset prices’ reactions to central bank announcements, and the effect of social media on flash crashes.

Before joining the Economics department, I completed a Ph.D. in the MIT Computer Science department, where I worked on cryptography, rational interactive proofs, and approximately optimal auction design
