About

I am a fourth year economics Ph.D. student at Cornell University in the fields of applied macroeconomics and macro-finance, currently studying U.S. federal housing credit policy, government interventions in mortgage markets, and the business cycle. I previously worked on a range of U.S. federal tax and budget policy issues as a Federal Budget Policy Analyst with both the Economic Policy Institute and The Century Foundation, and as an Assistant Budget Analyst and Research Assistant with the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Budget. I hold an M.A. in Economics from Cornell and a B.A. in Economics and Political Science from Swarthmore College.

This is my personal webpage, intended as a professional portfolio of my work as an economist and educator. And I hope to foray back into economics blogging in the near future…
