Socioeconomic inequality and time-use disparity in vulnerable populations; Economics of single-parent families; Health inequality


I first joined the Minnesota Population Center as a graduate research assistant during the first year of my Masters of Public Policy program in the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. While working as a research assistant, I discovered the intersection between my research interests and population studies. After being accepted into the Ph.D. program in Applied Economics,  I joined the MPC Population Studies Graduate Training Program.

My academic goal is to provide empirical policy recommendations on reducing socioeconomic and health inequality as well as increasing socioeconomic mobility.
