About Me

I am a Senior Economist at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, where I serve in the Labor Markets section within the Division of Research and Statistics.

My recent research explores cyclical and seasonal changes in labor market conditions, safety-net programs for unemployed and disabled workers, economic measurement, and economic forecasting. In earlier work, I analyzed the labor market impacts of technology and trade.

Prior to joining the Fed, I served as an Assistant Professor at the UC Davis Department of Economics from 2017–2019. At UC Davis, I taught an undergraduate course in Intermediate Microeconomics and a second-year PhD course in Labor Economics, and I was affiliated with the UC Davis Center for Poverty Research.

I want this site to be a clearinghouse for practical guidance tailored towards research assistants and early-career economists. I’ve given lectures on best practices for organizing code and data, and I’ve posted a host of resources for economics majors, PhD students, and anyone in a position to make the economics profession a better place for everyone in it and everyone left out.
