About me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics and Political Science at St. Catherine University. I received my PhD from the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota. Before starting the PhD I received my master's in public policy from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota. I research issues in development economics, primarily labor, education, health, and inequality in the Middle East and North Africa. Current projects include work on refugees, early childhood development, labor market dynamics, life course transitions, human capital accumulation, and fertility.
