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 rural labor markets. My work includes experimentally quantifying labor market frictions arising from informal village labor unions, to investigating workers’ demand for flexible labor contracts. In other work, I examine the impact of agricultural price supports on production decisions and spillovers to the non-agricultural sector through the movement of labor across sectors.
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.
