I am a Principal Economist in the Division of Research and Statistics at the Federal Reserve Board, where I am currently part of the team that forecasts the economic effects of fiscal policy. Previously, I spent seven years on the team that produces the Survey of Consumer Finances.  I obtained a PhD in Economics from the University of Maryland in 2013, and B.S. in Mathematics and Economics from The Ohio State University in 2007. My research is in labor and public economics, with a focus on domestic policy issues relating to families and household financial well-being.
