I am an applied microeconomist with interests in labor, development, migration, and political economy. My recent work includes research on how U.S. immigration policy impacts immigrants in the U.S. and locals in migrant-sending countries as well as the institutional, ideological, and political effects of Southern white migrants in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

I received my PhD in Economics from Boston University in May 2022.

Before starting the PhD, I worked for Peace Corps Nicaragua as an educator in Nicaragua’s Ministry of Education.

I will be joining the Department of Economics in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and the College of Arts and Sciences at Syracuse University as an assistant professor in the fall of 2022.
