I work on the economics of education, with a particular interest in improving policies, schools, and individual bahaviors in K-12 and higher education to reduce poverty and inequality.

Why do I want to improve education policy and school effectiveness for the poor? "25 dangerous roads to school in the world."

I am a doctoral researcher at the Education Policy Initiative of Michigan's Ford School of Public Policy.

I also enjoy teaching the economics of education (K-12, higher, international) and applied econometrics (and big data) in education policy.

My job market paper examines scalable solutions for improving college access and match by leveraging behavioral interventions, data science, and school organizational policies.

I am on the job market in the 2018-2019 academic year.
