Research Interests

Wage Inequality Research: In Rising Wage Inequality and Human Capital Investment, with Lancelot Henry de Frahan, we explore the real effects of rising local wage inequality on postsecondary schooling investments.

Persistence in Nonemployment: In Where Are the Workers, I explore the impact of declining labor demand in the manufacturing and service sectors on local disability insurance participation. 

Revolving Door & Talent Allocation: An ongoing project explores the compositional effects of a policy intended to slow the revolving door from careers on Capitol Hill to K Street on the labor supply of Congressional staff.
