Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am an applied microeconomist with work in education, skill development, and labor topics. Broadly, I am interested in the development of skills among children and adolescents. I am especially interested in noncognitive skills such as perseverance and grit and the role of family inputs and network spill-overs in their production. Within applied economics, my work has drawn from both the treatment effects and peer effects literature, and from theoretical economics, my work has drawn from identity economics and the economics of networks.

I am also interested in the evolution of skills among children of immigrants. More generally, I am interested in exploring differences in skill development among sub-populations to understand how policy might change development trajectories and, in turn, future economic outcomes.
