I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Mississippi State University, an IZA Research Affiliate, and an Annenberg Institute (Brown University) EdWorkingPapers Contributor. I will be spending a week in January 2023 in Munich, Germany as a Guest Researcher at CESifo and the Center for the Economics of Education (University of Munich).

My research interests are in applied microeconomics, including the economics of education. My research is published in journals including the Journal of Human Resources, Journal of Public Economics, Economics of Education Review, and Education Finance & Policy. My CV is available here.

I received a Ph.D. in Economics from Cornell University, and a Bachelors in Economics and Masters in Statistics from Utah State University. Before beginning my current position, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Georgia State University’s Georgia Policy Labs. I enjoy making data visualizations; see some examples here.
