labor economics, public economics,
BioMy dissertation is about labor economics of firm diversity--what happens to wages as firms become more racially diverse, and how coworker networks have evolved. I have worked on a variety of topics in labor economics, from projects estimating compensating differentials to understanding the determinants of disability insurance, and am interested in current work on corporate power that crosses over into industrial organization. Before my time at UCLA + Stanford, I mostly studied computational ecology. Outside of school, I like to cook, climb rocks, and woodwork.
Public Policy Research
Is there a field of public policy that interests you? What are some policies in that field that interest you, active or proposed? We will figure out how to use public data to improve the state of knowledge about that policy.
