Photo I am an Economist in the Research Department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. My research interests span urban, environmental, and development economics. I received 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 this, I worked for an energy efficiency consulting firm in Austin. My undergraduate degree is from the University of Texas at Austin, where I majored in Latin American History (LLILAS) and Economics. Before that, I delivered pizza.
