I received my PhD in Economics from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2022.

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 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 primarily driven by salary.
