I am an applied economist and statistician with ten years of experience managing and analyzing large datasets. I am passionate about communicating technical information in a compelling way to help others make informed decisions, and I build statistical models with interpretability and a take-home message in mind from the start.
A major theme of my research is understanding the impact of culture on the phenomena that are typically the subject of economic inquiry.
While my work is grounded in a disciplinary perspective thanks to my graduate training in economics, my research is broadly informed by insights from relevant social science.
Some of my past research includes topics related to local economic development policies, immigrant wages, immigrant language choice, infant mortality, property taxes, the cost of regulatory compliance, consumer behavior in regulated industries, and hedonic models of property values near power generation facilities.
