I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
My research lies at the intersection of labor economics and public economics. I study how the structure of labor markets determines who bears the benefit or burden of changes in policy or economic structure. I am particularly interested in the future of work, and how policy might best adapt to promote opportunity in 21st century labor markets.
I completed my Ph.D. at Harvard University in 2018. My dissertaion was recently awarded the first-place prize for the W.E. Upjohn Institute's 2018 Dissertation Award, which recognizes "the best PhD dissertation on employment-related issues." I am currently an OECD Future of Work Fellow.
