I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of Minnesota

I am an applied microeconomist whose papers mainly involve the workings of the health markets and the urban/rural divide in the United States. I work with Professor Tom Holmes and Professor Amil Petrin. I also have some work on competition and the US housing crisis with Dr. James A. Schmitz, Jr.

I work as a research assistant at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. All the views on this site are my own and do not represent the views of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis or the Federal Reserve System.
