I am a Ph.D. candidate in economics at the University of Virginia. My research utilizes methods and models drawn from the fields of Industrial Organization and Labor Economics to study questions about market structure and competition, college choice, admissions, tuition, and financial aid in the United States higher education market.
In my job market paper, I study competition between four‐year universities in a context in which universities make decisions about prices, selectivity and curriculum. My research publications include a paper in the Review of Industrial Organization (with Federico Ciliberto and Jonathan Williams), a short article in the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond's Economic Brief (with Jessie Romero and Sarah Turner), and a paper with Sarah Turner in the AERA Open. Please see my research page for details on these papers and other ongoing projects.
I will be available for interviews at the January 2020 ASSA meetings in San Diego.
