I'm a PhD student in the Economics department at the University of Maryland, College Park.  I will be joining the Labor Markets section at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in September 2020.

I research questions in macro and labor economics, with a focus on wage setting and worker reallocation.  My job market paper provides quasi-experimental evidence that downward nominal wage rigidity causally affects employment through the job destruction margin.
