I am a post-doctoral research scholar at the INET-Dornsife institute at the University of Southern California's Department of Economics from Fall 2018.
My research interests lie at the intersection of labor and development, with a particular focus on agricultural production and rural labor markets. My job market paper focuses on the impact of agricultural price supports on production decisions and spillovers to the non-agricultural sector. My other work ranges from experimentally quantifying labor market frictions arising from informal village labor unions, to investigating the extent to which incorrect rainfall predictions reduce farmer welfare.
I have experience teaching or assisting with a variety of undergraduate and masters-level courses. I received my PhD in Economics from Columbia University in May 2018.
