My research focuses on (1) workplace policies, and (2) criminal justice and child welfare systems. My job market paper measures productivity and labor supply increases in response to higher pay among warehouse and customer service workers.
Prior to graduate study, I received a BA in Economics at Yale University and an MSc in Evidence-Based Social Policy from Oxford University, where I studied as a Marshall Scholar. I worked as a research assistant to Professors Lawrence Katz and Claudia Goldin in 2013-2014 and as a fellow at the Government Performance Lab in 2011-2012. While in the UK, I worked for the Behavioural Insights Team.
I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and have sewn 14 quilts.
