I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. My research interests include Labor Economics, Applied Econometrics, and the Economics of Crime. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Oregon Robert D. Clark Honors College, majoring in Economics, History, Spanish, and Latin American Studies, with a minor in Mathematics. Prior to attending UCSB I was a Research Analyst specializing in environmental litigation support at ECONorthwest and FION!.

As a teaching assistant I have primarily taught econometrics and macroeconomics, both at the undergraduate and graduate level. I have also taught financial management, both as a teaching assistant and as the instructor of record. I currently work as a Senior Research Analyst for the Economics Forecast Project (EFP), and as a Research Associate with FION! 

When not at work, I enjoy reading, running, and spending time with my dog Bopper.
