About Me


I am a Research Fellow in the Department of Economics at Purdue University where I completed my Ph.D. in Economics in August 2014.

My primary research interests are in labor economics and public economics . My job market paper focuses on estimating the effect peer ability has on both a student's study habits and academic performance. I was awarded the Purdue Research Foundation Grant in 2012-2013 for this paper. A second paper addresses how the effect of peer ability varies within and between races. A third paper, a joint work with Brittany Teahan, estimates the effects that unemployment benefit generosity has on an individual's alcohol use and abuse following job loss.

In addition to my research interests I have taught Principles of Microeconomics and recitation for Introduction to Economic Principles. I earned the Krannert Award for Outstanding Teaching for both courses.

I will be available for interviews at the ASSA meetings in Boston.
