About

Welcome! I am a development economist, focusing on labor and behavioral economics. My research focuses on contract design in low-income settings. My job market paper studies an 18-month experiment with 240 schools and shows that performance pay can induce positive sorting among teachers.

I am currently a PhD Candidate in Economics at UC Berkeley. I have worked as a consultant for the World Bank and Save the Children. Prior to working as a researcher, I taught AP Physics & Biology in a low-income school outside Boston.

I am on the job market this year and available for interviews before, during and after the (virtual) 2021 AEA/ASSA meetings.

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