• Bio

  • I am an applied economist focused on the distribution of income between individuals as well as between groups. My dissertation looked at the distributional features of income data (work that I am currently revisiting at the Federal Research Data Center in Boulder, CO). I have also studied the evolution of inequality in the US, the impact of fiscal policy on the distribution of income in Europe, and the health consequence of income inequality.
