I am a Ph.D. candidate in economics at the University of Texas at Austin. My research interests are in topics of labor and public economics. My current work considers how public paid family leave affects fertility decisions. I have also analyzed the impacts of college admissions policy on the human capital investments of disadvantaged high school students.

I am on the job market and will be available for interviews at the 2020 ASSA meetings in San Diego.
