Labor Economics; Population Economics; Economics of the Family; Experimental Economics
I joined the MPC in 2015 after finishing my PhD in Public Policy at Duke University. I am an applied microeconomist whose research focuses on social inequities. I am particularly interested in the persistent difference in labor market outcomes based on sex and race. I investigate this persistent difference using field experiments, laboratory experiments, and analyzing demographic datasets. I base my work in economic theory and incorporate insight from sociology and psychology.
