I am an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Colorado Denver.

My research interests span multiple fields of applied microeconomics including development economics, labor economics, health economics, economic demography, and political economy.

My work has primarily focused on applying econometric techniques to population representative data in both developed and developing country settings, to examine how changes in the social, physical, and/or economic environment can have a persistent impact on health, preferences, and human capital accumulation. Recently, I have also begun to explore the relationship between the success of women competing for positions in entry-level positions and its subsequent impact on the gender gap at the top of the career ladder.
