I'm currently a Ph.D. candidate in economics at the
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, but I will be joining the Upjohn Institute for Employment Research in the summer of 2012. Most of my research focuses on labor economics, economics of the family, and economics of education, and particularly how all three fields intersect at labor market entry.
