I received my PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in May 2014. My research focuses on the returns to cognitive and noncognitive skills in various labor market contexts. I have completed field work in Labor Economics and Micro Theory, as well as coursework in Microeconometrics and Computational Economics.

Currently, I am a National Poverty Fellow, working with the University of Wisconsin Institute for Research on Poverty and the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation under the Administration for Children and Families, Department of Health and Human Services.

I have taught introductory economics courses in macro, micro and general economics.
