About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at Michigan State University.

I am an Applied Microeconomist with research interests in Labor Economics, the Economics of Education, and Development Economics. I am interested in topics exploring the dynamic interplay of human capital development and labor market outcomes, with a particular focus on education. My Job Market Paper studies the effects of exposure to foreign peers on domestic students' academic outcomes in post-secondary education in the US.

I will be on the 2023-24 job market and available for interviews.
