I hold a doctorate in economics from the University of Texas at Austin, specializing in

labor economics and public finance. I approach topics from many angles, using theoretical

models, empirical observations, and simulated economies to talk about real-world economic

issues. I enjoy using statistics to uncover relationships in data. I am a research grant recipient

from the Center for Population Economics at the University of Chicago.
