(Looking for my ULI Changing World Speaker Series talk? Click here.)

I am currently an economist in the research department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, USA. Previously, I was an assistant professor of economics at Georgia State University (Atlanta, GA). I received my Phd in economics from Duke University (Durham, NC), and I earned an undergraduate degree in economics and political science at Taylor University (Upland, IN).

My research interests are in urban/regional and labor economics and real estate. I am especially interested in labor mobility, housing markets and land use policy, and the dynamics of local labor markets. See the research tab to browse my available work.
