I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of California, Berkeley. My main research interests are in labor economics and the economics of education. My current research uses quasi-experimental and experimental research designs to understand how school quality and parent demand evolves in response to the introduction of public-school choice, and how shocks to education investment returns through changing immigration policies impact human capital decisions. Before pursuing higher education, I served in the United States Marine Corps and served tours in Iraq and Southeast Asia. I received a BA in Economics and Statistics from the University of California, San Diego, and an MA in Statistics from the University of California, Berkeley.
I am on the job market this year and available for interviews at the 2021 AEA/ASSA meetings.
