I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the
I study applied microeconomics with a focus on education, public, and labor economics. I am particularly interested in research topics and policies which aim to improve student equity.
In my job market paper, I analyze job transitions into management positions using a performance-based pay scheme for teachers and administrators. I find teachers are more likely to switch into an administrative position because of the performance rating system. By exploiting variation in teacher salary changes, I conclude the results are driven by factors related to the rating itself or a preference for less effective teachers for the assistant principalship, rather than factors associated with salary.
I will be available for interview at the 2022 ASSA annual meeting.
