I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

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 primarily driven by salary.

I will be available for interview at the 2022 ASSA and EJME 21 annual meetings.
