I'm a Ph.D. candidate in Education Policy and Program Evaluation. My primary research interests are in education finance and teacher labor markets, and I use a mix of descriptive quantitative, quasi-experimental and experimental research methods to answer questions of policy relevance. From 2012 to 2017 I worked for FHI 360, a non-profit organization based in Washington D.C., where I supported impact evaluations of education programs in East and West African countries. In 2011 I was a Vittana Fellow, helping to launch a crowdfunded higher education loan service in the Philippines, and from 2008-09 worked as an English teacher in Vietnam. I have a M.A. from Columbia University and a B.A. from Boston College.
