Affiliate, Institute of Behavioral Science

Associate Professor, Economics, University of Colorado Denver

Ph.D., Economics, University of California, Davis

I study U.S. policies—including safety net and social insurance programs, as well as immigration policy—and examine how they affect outcomes of both foreign-born and U.S.-born people. My work has been cited in numerous policy contexts and by major media outlets, and has been published in top economics journals including the American Economic Review and the Journal of Labor Economics. I earned a B.S. in Economics from the University of Texas at Austin and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California, Davis.
