I am an Education Research Consultant at the Michigan Department of Education and a Data Fellow in the Strategic Data Project. I received my Ph.D. in Economics in December 2013 from the University of Michigan, where my fields were Labor Economics, Economics of Education, and Public Finance. My primary research interests are in education policy; I am also interested in demography and labor markets.
