I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Economics under the mentor-ship of Todd Sorensen at the University of Nevada, Reno.  My broad research interests are in the area of labor economics-skill allocation choice/outcomes.  Currently, I am studying labor market outcomes using the "Task Approach."  Specifically, how occupational task dissimilarity influences occupational choice, the impacts labor demand shocks have on workers in relatively technologically isolated occupations, and returns to source country task-specific human capital for immigrants in the US.

My research consists of using large data sources and applying the foundations and methodologies of applied microeconomics.  More succinctly, I have employed the use of choice models, regression analysis, and selection models to estimate economic relationships related to the research interests stated above.

At the University of Nevada, Reno I have taught 100, 200, 300, and 400/600 level courses.  Those courses are Principles of Microeconomics, Principles of Macroeconomics, Statistics II, Intermediate Microeconomics, and Introduction to Econometrics.  In the current Fall 2017 term, I am teaching two sections of Principles of Microeconomics.

Further details on my research agenda/interests and teaching information can be found on their respective pages.
