Welcome! I am a fourth-year Economics Ph.D. student at the University of Oregon.
Broadly, my research focuses on delivering insight to public policy questions across a range of areas. A reoccurring theme that comes up across my research is: What are the consequences (costs and/or benefits) affiliated with implementing policy at different geographic levels? What tradeoffs are we making when we implement a policy at the county-level vs. state-level (or national)? Who wins? Who loses?
On a more personal note, I am a long-time cycling enthusiast. I am a (currently inactive) USA cycling category 2 road cyclist, and depending on the state of the COVID19 pandemic, may return to amateur road racing in 2021.
