I am 5th year PhD student in Economics at the University of Pennsylvania. My research fields are applied microeconomics, development economics, labor economics and applied econometrics. My job market paper evaluates the effects of various policy interventions on the gaps in skills between rich and poor children. I estimate a skills production function using a dynamic latent factor structure, nested within a collective model of household behavior. I incorporate particle filtering techniques from financial econometrics in order to estimate this model.

I will be available for interviews a the ASSA meetings in Chicago. You can find my CV here and you can contact me at
