I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) in its Education Policy and Program Evaluation concentration. My work focuses on using experimental and quasi-experimental research designs to measure the impacts of education programs and policies. I typically study topics at the intersection of education and labor economics, especially teacher labor markets, career and technical education, peer effects, and school desegregation.
Prior to HGSE, I was a Strategic Data Project Fellow at the Wake County Public School System in greater Raleigh and studied state education policies at the Southern Regional Education Board in Atlanta. I also taught middle school in Atlanta as a Teach for America corps member and co-founded education technology company BetterLesson. I studied economics and Russian at Wesleyan University and political science at Georgia State University.
