I am a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at Cornell University. I am also affiliated with the Department of Policy Analysis and Management. My research is primarily concerned with the social welfare implications of risky health behaviors and crime, which means my work lies at the intersection of health economics, public economics, and the economics of crime.

Before coming to Cornell, I was a Senior Research Assistant in the Fiscal Analysis section at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington, D.C. from 2012-2015. I graduated from Colby College in Waterville, Maine in 2012 with a B.A. in Economics and Government.
