• My research is concerned with identifying the long-run effects of large, transformational Federal policies such as Redlining, the War on Poverty and the Affordable Care Act.  I am interested in understanding how increases in access to credit markets, early childhood education and medical care can influence the course of a person’s life.  In the near future, I will further these existing research projects with restricted Census datasets. 

    Alongside this research in applied microeconomics, in all of the economics courses I teach, my background in philosophy allows me to help students explore conceptual issues about the history of economics as well as ethical issues about fairness and discrimination.
