About

Welcome! I am a development economist studying labor and behavioral economics questions. My research examines labor and education market imperfections, especially around issues of asymmetric information.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Becker Friedman Institute and will join the University of Chicago’s Economics Department as an Assistant Professor in 2023.

I received a PhD in Economics from UC Berkeley and worked as a consultant for the World Bank and Save the Children. Prior to working as a researcher, I taught high school physics.

My CV is here, and a description of my research is here.
