I am a recent graduate from the University of Chicago and a PhD student at Harvard's Department of Economics. At Chicago, I tutored students one-on-one (both in person and online) and led two weekly review classes , which served over 500 students over the span of twenty weeks.

Learning economics may seem like memorizing a long list of formulas and graphs — especially the way it is often taught in high school and college — but is actually a unified and incredibly powerful way of understanding the world. My goal is to convey this intuition not only to help students succeed in classes and on exams, but to help them learn to apply the basic principles of economics to their everyday lives.

I pride myself on my ability to explain complicated concepts in simple terms. My teaching style is influenced by my interest in cognitive science and the study of learning: during my time as a tutor at the University of Chicago, I wrote several guides to studying economics. I am happy to provide teaching evaluations upon request.

My research interests include behavioral economics, political economy, and applied microeconomics broadly. My current research studies the effect of contact between different groups on the transmission of beliefs, knowledge, and norms.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Knowledgeable and easy to work with!

Aakaash and I reviewed a data set and he helped me write Rscript for a couple questions. Easy to work with, and seemed knowledgeable. He was also a very swift communicator, I was able to correspond email and the like, and he was very patient with me.

Knowledgeable and good teacher

He taught me the basics of Bayes theorem and its nuances of it. He also taught me the Gaussian process regression, MCMC and other advanced concepts. He was really patient and explained with practical examples.
