Overview

About

I am an associate professor in the Department of Economics and a Research Fellow with the Institute of Labor Economics (IZA). I have a BSFS from Georgetown University and an MA and PhD in economics from Ohio State University. Before joining the department in 2016, I was on the faculty at Simon Fraser University.


Research

I am a labor economist with research interests in education, job search, and the intersection of economics and psychology. Much of my research combines standard econometric methods using survey data with laboratory experiments.
