I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Yale University in 2013. My dissertation was entitled “Intergenerational Transfers, Fertility, and Human Capital.” Before I joined Rhodes College, I was an Assistant Professor at Clemson University where I taught Introduction to Econometrics and Family Economics. My research interests include topics in Development Economics, Labor Economics, Family Economics, and Urban Economics.
