I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at Harvard University. My primary research interests are in labor economics and economic history. I am also a doctoral fellow in the Harvard Multidisciplinary Program on Inequality and Social Policy and a recipient of the Cochran Fellowship in economic history. I graduated with a BA in Economics and Mathematics from Wesleyan University in 2008. My recent work explores intergenerational mobility in the early 20th century US, the effects of labor unions on elections and politics, the effects of trade shocks on policy positions, and the economic determinants of unionization activity over the last 100 years.
