I am a PhD candidate in the economics department at the University of Chicago. I do empirical research that informs the design of institutions and policies aimed at stimulating upward economic mobility. Several of my current projects examine the link between socio-economic outcomes for low-income households and policy instruments that shape rental housing markets, such as in-kind transfers, regulation, and allocation rules.

I will be available for interview at the 2019 AEA/ASSA Annual Meeting.
