About me

I'm an Economics Ph.D. candidate at UC Berkeley focusing on public finance topics at the intersection of labor economics and macroeconomics. Starting in July 2014, I will be an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

My current focus is on the interaction of corporate taxation, firm location decisions, and the location and scale of economic activity. I am interested in many fiscal policy issues such as the incidence and efficiency costs of corporate taxation, the economic impacts of taxing high-income earners, corporate tax policy and declining labor shares, productivity and taxation, and biased productivity growth & rising healthcare expenditures. My advisors are Alan AuerbachYuriy GorodnichenkoPatrick Kline, and Emmanuel Saez
