I am a Ph.D. student in Consumer Behavior and Family Economics (CBFE) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Before making my academic exodus to applied social sciences, I completed my Bachelor's in Electrical & Electronic Engineering and my Master's in Sustainable Systems. Broadly, my research interests are at the intersection of social policy and wellbeing. Beyond research, I am passionate about communicating complicated academic concepts in a down-to-earth manner with the goal of making them practically relevant and potentially applicable to a wider population. My articles typically focus on applied causal inference, data analysis in R, statistical literacy, human behavior, and wellbeing. Predominantly, my writings are inspired by the difficulties I have faced and/or observed others around me facing while grasping concepts/methods throughout an adventurous journey in the applied social sciences.
