Assistant Professor of Economics
University of San Diego
I am an applied economist working in the fields of development economics and applied econometrics. My primary research examines the implications of agricultural development and technical change on the welfare and structural transformation of local economies.
I also study questions on the econometrics of impact evaluation, with an emphasis on attrition and the internal validity of treatment effect studies.
Prior to joining the University of San Diego, I earned a Ph.D. at UC Davis and worked as a consultant for the World Bank and the InterAmerican Development Bank in Washington DC.
