I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at the University of Pittsburgh.  My research and teaching interests include applied microeconomics, public economics, urban economics, economic history, segregation, and inequality.  My current research agenda is focused on understanding the role of public policies in shaping long-run neighborhood outcomes. Much of my work requires identifying and digitizing primary sources to assemble novel datasets.

I am on the job market, and will be available for interviews at the 2020 ASSA meetings in San Diego.
