My research explores the labor market impacts of technology and trade, the safety net for displaced and disabled workers, and the causes and consequences of labor market seasonality. I have a particular interest in the efficacy of unemployment insurance in replacing lost earnings, dampening aggregate downturns, and aiding in nowcasts of economic activity.
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.
