I study the labor market impacts of policies and am interested in topics like unions, Right-to-Work laws, the Earned Income Tax Credit (state or federal), minimum wage, low-wage markets, family and medical leave, disability insurance, and the social safety net. While my research is primarily on US policies, I am interested in labor and social policies in other advanced industrial economies. My work is largely quantitative, though there is some scope for qualitative research with students.
Data collection and database work: collecting, cleaning, and importing federal data into a dataset for analysis.
- Typically one-on-one
- One-on-one or in small groups, depending on the project
