I am a PhD student in Public Policy at the University of Washington. 

My research typically involves analyzing social policy problems through economic and psychological lenses. My research interests include economic mobility and social assistance policies. My current focus is on child development accounts.

Prior to joining the Evans School of Public Policy, I worked as an Economic Policy Analysis Specialist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. There I developed metrics and tools such as Labor Force Participation Dynamics and the Wage Growth Tracker and contributed numerous Federal Reserve Bank discussion papers and related blogs

I earned a master’s degree in Applied Economics and a bachelor’s degree in Economics from The Florida State University, where I have taught data analysis and data visualization.
