About

I am a sixth-year economics Ph.D. candidate at Cornell University in the fields of applied macroeconomics, macro-finance, and public finance. My current research focus is U.S. federal housing credit policy and government interventions in mortgage markets. I am on the job market and will be available for interviews at the ASSA meetings in January 2019. My dissertation committee is comprised of Karel Mertens (Chair), Kristoffer Nimark (Co-Chair), Andrew Karolyi, and Levon Barseghyan.

I previously worked on a range of U.S. federal tax and budget policy issues as a Federal Budget Policy Analyst with 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 University 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. I hope to foray back into economics blogging in the near future…
