Ph.D. Candidate

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at Texas A&M University. I will be an Assistant Professor at Florida State University in Fall 2019.

I use experimental and behavioral economics to study questions related to labor economics and the economics of education. My current research projects relate to how women respond to potential discrimination in the labor market, the effect of stereotypes on academic outcomes of black college students, and how the stigma of unemployment impacts future worker effort.
