About Me

I am a third-year economics PhD student at Northwestern University. I work on labor economics, economic history and the economics of gender. In recent work, I study the effects of technological innovations on women's economic outcomes, women's historical intergenerational mobility and its interaction with sorting in the marriage market, and occupational sorting on the basis of gender. 

Prior to graduate school, I worked as a pre-doctoral fellow at Princeton University. I also hold an MA from the University of Chicago and a BA from NYU Abu Dhabi.
