Research Assistant
Associated Projects

I joined the Minnesota Population Center (MPC) as a graduate research assistant in 2014. I have assisted in the validation, coding and error correction of historical census microdata.

I am interested in applying economics, statistics, and mathematical optimization to environmental, regulatory, and development issues. Current research focuses broadly on the impacts of government policies on economic efficiency and cost effectiveness, with a special focus on developing countries as well as the agricultural sector. The state-of-the-art data infrastructure provided by the MPC will help me examine these issues from a demographic perspective.
