About me

In addition to my passion for economics, I am also an avid computer programmer, constantly seeking out new tools, libraries, and programming languages to expand my knowledge and expertise. When I'm not coding, I enjoy exploring the great outdoors, often spending my weekends hiking or climbing mountains. I make it a point to stay active during the week as well, either by running or biking. While I used to compete in triathlons, I haven't had the opportunity to do so since beginning my PhD program at UMass. However, I still make time for open water swimming during the summer months. For a change of pace, I also enjoy indulging my interest in flight simulation, both in sport aircraft and airliners. Overall, I believe that a well-rounded lifestyle is essential for maintaining good physical and mental health, and I strive to strike a balance between my academic pursuits and my personal interests.
