I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at Duke University, graduating in May 2019. My research lies at the intersection of labor and development economics, addressing poverty and inequality in the United States and in low-income countries. I hold an MA in economics from Duke, an MSc in economics for development from the University of Oxford, and a BA in political science from the University of Florida. During my time at Duke, I have been a Preparing Future Faculty fellow (2018-2019) and a Kenan Institute for Ethics graduate fellow (2017-2018). By graduation, I also expect to receive a Certificate in College Teaching (CCT) from Duke. The CCT program has provided me with pedagogical training and reflective teaching opportunities, helping me develop skills that I am excited to apply to future teaching and mentoring experiences.

I will be available for interviews at the ASSA annual meeting in Atlanta and the APPAM annual meeting in Washington, D.C.
