Welcome! I am an Economics Ph.D. candidate at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I am also a member of the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Working Group, and a dissertation fellow of the Institute for Research on Poverty.

My main interest is in intergenerational mobility and inequality. My research investigates multiple mechanisms through which parents affect their children, both in early and late life. I am also broadly interested in human capital development and the role of skills (both cognitive and non-cognitive) in determining diverse outcomes, including wages, health, and crime.
