Research/Creative Interests

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.

Research/Creative Needs

Data collection and database work: collecting, cleaning, and importing federal data into a dataset for analysis.
