I am a  PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of California, Davis. My primary fields are labor economics and public finance. I am currently on the job market and will be available for interviews at the 2019 ASSA meetings.

My research interests are in applied microeconomics. My dissertation focuses on the effect of increased incarceration rates on fertility, family formation, and infant outcomes, exploring mass incarceration through the lens of intergenerational mobility. I also have an ongoing research project that uses linked census data to understand the effects of immigration on native workers.
