Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at Grinnell College. I am on sabbatical for the 2019-20 academic year, visiting the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern University. I am grateful for financial support for this leave via the Harris Faculty Fellowship from Grinnell College and Jack Harris '39 and Lucile Hanson Harris '40.
I completed my Ph.D. in 2016 in the economics department at Cornell University, where Francine Blau led my graduate committee. My fields of research are development and labor economics.
