I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics at William & Mary. I received my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Michigan under the supervision of Hoyt Bleakley and Andrei Levchenko.
Research agenda: I work on international trade, economic geography, and urban economics. My agenda on trade focuses on structural transformation, growth, and infrastructure. My urban economics agenda relates to sorting, segregation, and city inequality. In my research, I use both structural models and applied microeconomics methods; as well as administrative and historical data.
Teaching: I have been TA or Instructor for Principles of Microeconomics, Principles of Macroeconomics, International Trade, and Statistics in the past 10 years. At William & Mary, I advise undergraduate students in three majors: Economics, International Relations, and Computational & Applied Mathematics & Statistics (CAMS). I have trained 20 undergraduate research assistants who have worked on my research projects since 2019. Their tasks have included geospatial data, historical datasets, administrative datasets, and legal documents.
