I am currently a Research Assistant Professor at the Wagner School of Public Service and Center for Urban Science & Progress at New York University. I was previously a Post-Doc in the Economics Department at Ohio State University and completed my PhD at the University of Connecticut. I am an applied microeconomist with training in the fields of urban and labor economics. My current research agenda touches on issues related to innovation, technology spillovers, human capital development, labor dynamics, and discrimination. Much of my career has been motivated by the idea that rigorous empirical analysis is an increasingly important tool for evaluating and informing public policy that impacts the lives of real people.
