Welcome to my webpage!

I am a Research Fellow at the NYU Furman Center. I completed my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of California, San Diego in 2017. My research interests are in Urban Economics, International Trade, and Economic History. My research (to date) has used archival data to quantitatively analyze historical cities and used spatial equilibrium models to evaluate contemporary migration policies.

I am currently on the job market and will be available for interviews at the CICE China Job Market in Beijing (December 2019), EEA European Job Market in Rotterdam (December 2019), and ASSA in San Diego (January 2020).
