MPhil in Economics

Research Interests: Microeconomics, microeconomic theory, and industrial organisation. 

I am an MPhil in Economics student and an ESRC scholar. My research interests lie mostly in applied microeconomics, microeconomic theory, and industrial organisation.

Prior to Oxford, I earned a BSc in Economics from University College London, where I was placed on the Faculty Dean’s List and awarded the Harold Speight Prize for the best overall performance in the Department of Economics.

Born in Tehran, I have lived in the United States, Scotland, and England. Moreover, I have worked as a Summer Analyst at Morgan Stanley and as a Pre-Doctoral Fellow at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, both in London. Outside of economics, I am interested in US history, particularly in the Antebellum and Civil War eras.
