I am a fifth-year PhD candidate in economics at Binghamton University. My research interest lies at the intersection of labor economics, economics of immigration, and public policy. In particular, my research focuses on evaluating the effects of US immigration policies on the labor market outcomes and health insurance of immigrants and their US-born children.

I am on the job market in 2023-2024 and will be available for interviews.
