I am currently a Research Assistant Professor in the Wagner School of Public Service at New York University. I hold joint appointments as a Research Scientist with the National Bureau of Economic Research as well as the Center for Urban Science & Progress. I was previously a Post-Doc in the Economics Department at Ohio State University and completed my PhD at the University of Connecticut in 2016. I am an applied microeconomist but my research has a strong domestic policy focus and lies at the intersection of labor and urban economics. My current research agenda touches on issues related to innovation, technology spillovers, regional labor markets, human capital development, labor dynamics, and discrimination. Much of my career has been motivated by the idea that rigorous empirical analysis can better inform public policy and impact the lives of real people.
