Biography

I am an economist whose research focuses on topics in applied microeconomics, particularly in labor and demographic economics, public economics. As a postdoctoral researcher, I have been working on the projects in the IPSR’s research agenda and provides support in all stages of research development. Besides working as researcher, I contribute to all levels of data extraction, transform and loading efforts in various projects.

I received my doctorate degree in economics from the University of Kansas. In my dissertation, I investigated the labor market outcomes of the civilian US veterans in three chapters. I developed new Instrumental Variables exploiting the interstate differences on unemployment, military and veteran population to estimate the net causal effect of the military experience on the civilian labor market experience of the veterans as compared to civilian with no military experience.
