I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Oregon State University, part of the School of Public Policy. I am also a Research Affiliate at IZA (Institute for the Study of Labor). 

My research areas are development economics, labor economics, and the economics of education. My current work focuses on youth unemployment in South Africa, the effect of Mexican immigration on labor markets in the U.S, and education reform in the Gambia.
