About

I am a sixth-year economics Ph.D. candidate at Cornell University in the fields of applied macroeconomics and public economics. I will be joining the faculty of Middlebury College as an Assistant Professor of Economics in the summer of 2019. My current research is focused on federal credit policy interventions in U.S. mortgage markets. 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.
