Thanks for stopping by! I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.

My Research

My interests lie at the intersection of public economics, industrial organization, labor economics and econometrics, with a focus on the economics of education and the economics of crime and criminal justice. I combine structural and design-based econometric approaches to answer policy-relevant applied microeconomics questions. I also am interested in applied econometrics and using new econometric tools to answer important questions.


In addition to pursuing a Ph.D. in Economics, I am a Fellow in the Interdisciplinary Training Program (ITP) in Education Sciences at UW-Madison, a Pre-Doctoral Training Program funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute for Education Sciences (IES). I also am a Graduate Research Fellow at the Institute for Research on Poverty (IRP), a Research Affiliate at the SSTAR Lab, and a Pre-Doctoral Trainee at the Center for Demography and Ecology (CDE), all at UW-Madison.


Before arriving to UW-Madison, I received a Master of Arts in Economics and Education from Columbia University’s Teachers College. Before that, I worked as a research associate at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. I graduated magna cum laude from Mount Holyoke College with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Spanish.
