About Me

I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Economics at Stanford University. I work on a variety of topics in labour and public economics, investigating questions such as:​

  • How can reporting policies influence the gender pay gap?
  • Does the importance of your family background on how far you get in adulthood also depend on where you grow up?
  • How well do conventional models of intergenerational mobility capture broader notions of equality of opportunity?

I am a contributor to the CORE project, an open-access, interactive course for anyone interested in learning about the economy and economics. I'm involved with the Economics Observatory, which brings the UK's research community together to provide clear information on Covid-19-related issues. I've also designed a short online course on Applied Econometrics in Stata.

Have a look at some of my research and other writing here.

I share some of my code on GitHub and am also sporadically active on Twitter.
