I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Virginia Military Institute in the Department of Economics and Business and a coordinator for the joint Washington & Lee/VMI Economics Seminar.
I am an Applied Microeconomist researching topics in labor economics, urban economics, public economics, and housing economics.
I received a PhD from the University of Connecticut in 2019 and an MBA from Old Dominion University in 2013.
My current research has two main areas of focus:
How retirees can maximize their consumption in retirement, specifically understanding how they could and why they do not use their housing equity for that purpose
The impact of public policy on health and health outcomes
