Graduate Student Fellow

I am a PhD student in the Department of Economics at UCSB and a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. Before coming to Santa Barbara, I earned a B.A. in International Relations with a concentration in Economics from Wellesley College, and did research on labor, housing and education at Abt Associates. My current research interests include labor, social policy, and increasingly, economic history, along with applied econometrics. I am working on a  project concerning interracial interactions during the Jim Crow era of the American South.
