I am a Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy at Harvard University, a doctoral research fellow at the Program for Education Policy and Governance, and an IES PIER Fellow through the Center for Education Policy Research.
I study labor economics and education policy, with a focus on adult training and immigrant language skills. My research is primarily focused on the development and deployment of human capital in the context of public education, however I am broadly interested in how individuals and institutions build and use productive skills. I believe a nation's greatest resource is its people and that public education is the foundation of developing that resource. My current projects are related to immigrant language skills, adult basic education, high school equivalency credentialing, college access, teacher labor markets, and decision theory.
