I am a Senior Economist in the Research Department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. My research interests span urban, environmental, and development economics. I completed my PhD in 2017 from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I was advised by faculty in both the Department of Economics and the Bren School.
Before graduate school, I worked for an energy efficiency consulting firm in Austin, TX. My undergraduate degree is from the University of Texas at Austin, where I majored in Latin American Studies (LLILAS) and Economics. Once upon a time, I spent two years at UNT in Denton, TX, thinking I wanted to study music. Before that, I delivered pizza and gassed up boats.
