PhD Candidate in Economics

Michigan State University


I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at Michigan State University. My current research explores how college students make their enrollment, labor supply, borrowing, and studying decisions. I also have research examining how labor supply elasticities for adults in the United States have changed over time, and research studying how students’ non-cognitive skills are influenced by the gender distribution of their peers.

I am currently accepting interview requests for the 2020-2021 job market.
