I am an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Vermont. I previously worked as a visiting assistant professor at the National University of Singapore. I received a Ph.D in economics and public policy from the University of Michigan in 2013 and a B.S. in economics, mathematics, and Spanish from the University of Michigan in 2006.
My research interests are in labor and development economics, with a particular focus on employment and education policy, migration, fertility and marriage, and the role of incomplete information and behavioral biases on individual decision-making. I am currently conducting impact evaluations of summer employment and teacher placement programs in the Philippines, as well as field experiments on the relative returns to education and experience among young job-seekers.
