Research Fields: Labor, Health, Public, Experimental, Behavioral

I have a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Pittsburgh. My research and teaching interests include Labor and Health economics, and their intersections with Public and Behavioral economics.

In my work I use observational data and lab, field, and online experiments. My current research agenda is focused on understanding the role of affirmative action and other gender-based labor policies on women's labor market outcomes and on the effects of mental health and substance abuse legislation on mortality.

I am excited to start a post-doc in the Science of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging with the Economics Department of Monash University and a post-doc in the Learning, Research, and Development Center at the University of Pittsburgh this Fall!
