About Me

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 with research fields in labor economics, urban economics, public economics, and health economics. I research topics in real estate, consumption and saving in retirement, and health policy.

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
