About Me



I am an Assistant Research Professor with the Social Science Research Institute and Evidence-to-Impact Collaborative at Penn State.
I am an applied microeconomist working on topics related to public and labor economics and child welfare policy.

My current research focuses on how family structure impacts children's long-run outcomes and on critical issues in child welfare systems.
