Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics
at The Ohio State University
My research interests are in development economics, labor economics, demography, and regional economics. My research lies at the intersection of gender, migration, and factors that affect labor market participation. Some of these factors are the opportunity cost of time, job-search frictions, and human capital investment. My adviser is Joyce Chen, with Mark Partridge and Abdoul Sam as part of my committee. You may read more about my research here (Job Market Paper here).
Before OSU, I worked in the financial sector as a credit risk analyst, and with non-profits and international organizations. I received a B.A. (Economics with Honors, Mathematics) and an MPA from Clark University. I also have an M.Sc. in Agricultural and Resource Economics from the University of California at Davis.
