Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Graduate Research Assistant at the Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research (BCBER).
My research measures the impact of public policies and regulation with a focus on poverty alleviation. Currently, I analyze the effects of conditional cash transfers (EITC) on intergenerational mobility, family behavior, and business performance. With the BCBER, my work monitors and evaluates the effectiveness of Higher Ed efforts in Tennessee. My experience includes ten years teaching as an instructor/lecturer. I also served as a Consultant to state and local governments in the U.S. and abroad, and the Inter-American Development Bank.
I advocate for using empirical evidence and innovative data to improve public policies, working with causal inference, economic forecasts, data mining, and automation tools.
I am in the job market in 2023-2024.
