I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at Vanderbilt University. I am broadly interested in policy relevant topics in applied microeconomics. My primary fields of specialization are labor economics and the economics of education. My dissertation research explores the impact of education policy in the United States on human capital and labor market outcomes. I am also interested in topics in urban and health economics.
I will be available for interview at the APPAM Fall Conference in Denver in November 2019 and at the ASSA/AEA Annual Meeting in San Diego in January 2020.
