I am an applied labor economist with an interest in policy-relevant research questions. My thesis work focuses on the economics of education, but I am broadly interested in topics within labor economics, social economics and gender economics. Click here to learn more about my research.

I expect to defend my PhD in spring 2021 and am on the Job Market in 2020/21. I will be available for interviews at the SNS Job Market, the European Job Market, and the ASSA Virtual Annual Meeting. My job market paper is called The Effect of Higher-Stakes Grades on Student Achievement. Click here to read the most recent version.
