I am currently a postdoctoral scientist at Amazon - SCOT team. I received my Ph.D. degree from the University of Pennsylvania under supervision of Prof. Francis X. Diebold and Prof. Frank Schorfheide.
My research interests include econometrics, machine learning, applied macroeconomics, and climate econometrics.
My research focuses on grouped heterogeneity in panel data models. I’m particularly interested in bringing prior knowledge of the latent group structure into the models. It is an exciting topic that blends panel estimation with semi-supervised learning and social network models. (Extended abstract)
