I am an Assistant Professor of Applied Economics in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington Bothell. I received my PhD in economics from the University of Pittsburgh in 2015. You can find my CV here.

My research lies in the fields of urban, public, and environmental economics. I am particularly interested in urban crime, environmental justice, and the role of local government policy in shaping the evolution of cities. I also have a strong interest in econometric theory, with an emphasis on causal inference using observational data. My research is highly interdisciplinary, drawing from economics, urban planning, criminology, sociology, environmental studies, and statistics.
