I am an applied labor and public economist with broad interests. My current work in labor examines the effects of occupational licensing and monopsony power. I also have various work on the interactions between labor unions and firms, workers, and the public transfer system as well as work on how firms invest in their workers’ human capital. I also have work incorporating insights from behavioral economics into labor supply decisions and firm-worker interactions. My other work in public economics focuses on the effects of SNAP work requirements on household finance and the effects of place-based development and housing policies. Before starting at NHH, I received my PhD from Cornell University.
I will be on the job market during the 2023-2024 market season.
