I am an assistant professor at the University of Virginia. I am affiliate of JPAL-North America.

I received my PhD in economics at Harvard in 2021, where I was also a Stone Scholar in the Inequality and Social Policy Program.  I was a postdoc at Princeton University in the Industrial Relations Section in 2021-2022. I was an Assistant Professor at the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business in 2022-2023.

My research focuses on labor, personnel economics, and law and economics. I am particularly interested in remote work and prosecutorial discretion.
