I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at Florida State University. I will join the Social Science Research Institute and Evidence-to-Impact Collaborative at Penn State as an Assistant Research Professor in the summer of 2022.
My current research focuses on how family structure impacts children's long-run outcomes and on critical issues in child welfare systems.
The second chapter of my dissertation examines the sources of over-representation of Black children in foster care systems and the causal effects of one popular reform that seeks to reduce this over-representation. Finally, the last chapter of my dissertation is published in the Journal of Public Economics and highlights the link between educators and the reporting of child maltreatment allegations.
