As of 1 July 2012 I am an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University.
I obtained my Ph.D. in economics from the Department of Economics, University of Toronto in 2009 and worked for four years in the Research School of Economics, the Australian National University, before moving to Laurier.

My research interests include the impact of changes in trade policy on labour markets, firms, household businesses, poverty, and inequality in developing countries. I approach these interests from an empirical perspective. Most of my research has focused on Vietnam and explores the impacts of the 2001 U.S.-Vietnam Bilateral Trade Agreement on outcomes in Vietnam using household and firm survey data. I recently began researching trade liberalization in Botswana using labour force survey data.
