Received Sylff Fellowship in 2013.
I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of Michigan. My research fields include public finance, development economics and labor economics. My research uses new administrative datasets to analyze the relationship between public policies and income inequality. One strand of research investigates how firm-worker relationships shape responses to tax policy and how public policies, in turn, shape firm-worker relationships. Another strand of research estimates the role of tax evasion and tax enforcement for real and measured income inequality. Prior to entering the doctoral program, I received an M.P.A. from Columbia University, served in the United States Peace Corps and received my B.A. in Political Science from the University of Michigan.
