PhD Candidate

Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics

at The Ohio State University

I am currently on the job market and I am available for interviews at the 2020 ASSA meeting in San Diego, CA.

My research interests are in development economics, demography, and regional economics. My research focuses on gender and migration; specifically, on the relationship between migration and individual characteristics, and how it differs if the migrant is a woman. 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.
