Welcome to my site! I am an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at Tulane University. I received my Ph.D. in economics from the University of California, Irvine in June 2019.
My current research focuses on the political economy of migration and local development. I use a combination of economic theory and empirical methods, including economic history.
At the moment, I'm interested in the regional effects of forced migration and the economic roots of religious participation.
See my paper, "Shocks and the spatial distribution of economic activity: The role of institutions," in the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization.
