I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at the University of Pittsburgh with research interests in urban economics, development economics, economic history and transportation. My research explores topics related to urban residential segregation by income and race, the cost of mobility within cities and the relationship between the two.

I am on the 2020-21 job market, so feel free to reach out with offers, advice or encouragement.
