In July 2024, I will join the School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University as a Lead Economist. My research focuses on evaluating the impact of public policies and regulations, with a focus on poverty alleviation and their impact on households, firms, and government. Specifically, my dissertation analyzes how conditional cash transfers, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, influence intergenerational mobility, family dynamics, and labor market outcomes. My interests also include human capital formation, studying the impact of K-12 and higher education initiatives on labor markets, school attendance, and the development of skills.

I have a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Previously, I was a Research Assistant at the Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Tennessee. My experience includes eight years of teaching as an instructor/lecturer. I also serve as a Consultant to state and local governments in the U.S. and abroad, and the Inter-American Development Bank.

I love economics, and I advocate for using empirical evidence and innovative data to improve public policies, working with experimental and quasi-experimental designs, economic forecasts, data mining, and automation tools to inform policymakers.
