Research Statement

I am an applied economist interested in policy-oriented research. My research focuses on the economics of crime and gender. In studying the gender wage gap, my research emphasizes the importance of accounting for declining male labor force participation. I am currently studying the effects of presumptive sentencing guidelines on sentencing inequality. For future research, I plan to study the effects of a public assistance ban for individuals convicted of a drug felony on food stamp receipt and marriage formation.
