Assistant Professor of Economics

I’m an applied microeconomist with interests in labor, education, and public economics. My research focuses on how educators affect student outcomes in the short run and long run, and the effects of policies aimed at educators' incentives. This fall I’m teaching Principles of Microeconomics and Economics of Natural Resources and the Environment.
