Research Interests

I am interested in the intersections of labor and development economics, policy analysis, demography, public health, and gender studies. I have conducted research on data collection on Indigenous populations, gender norms, women's labor force outcomes, and intrahousehold behavior. As a graduate student, I hope to focus my research on the ways that gender (norms, attitudes, roles) and biological sex shape women's domestic and economic lives.


I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Applied Economics. I received my bachelors degree in Economics and Women and International Development from St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota.
