Welcome to my website. I am an assistant professor at the John E. Walker Department of Economics of Clemson University, currently on leave as a visiting assistant professor at the Sol Price School of Public Policy of the University of Southern California. In the Fall of 2024, I will join the Department of Economics of Texas A&M University as an associate professor.

I am also a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research, a Research Affiliate at the IZA Institute of Labor Economics, and an associate editor of the Journal of Human Capital.

I am an applied micro-economist using tools of labor, public, and development economics to investigate the economic fundamentals driving the efficiency and effectiveness of social policies that tackle poverty in the US and developing countries. Here is a video in which I discuss a few of my recent projects.

My CV is here.
