Georgia State University
Welcome! I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Economics at Georgia State University . My research focuses on issues in public economics, especially those related to social mobility, the economics of education, and the social safety net.
I am a graduate research assistant in the Georgia Policy Labs, where I work in the Metro Atlanta Policy Lab for Education. My research at GSU is supported by the National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship.
I received my BS in Economics and my MS in Data Analytics from Georgia Tech , where I was a research assistant in the Data Science and Policy Lab working on applications of machine learning to energy and environmental policy. I've also spent time as a research intern at the National Renewable Energy Lab and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston .
