I am a labor economist. My research focuses on studying the impact of public policies related to the labor market using microeconometric methods. My work emphasizes understanding the role of these policies during important life transitions such as entrance into the labor market and retirement. My recent papers include analyses of gender inequality and intersectional discrimination encountered by older working women. Another current research investigates both intended (health insurance coverage rate) and unintended consequences (marriage rate and crime rate) of health insurance mandates on young adults. I also use empirical methods to predict the impact artificial intelligence will have on the labor force in the near future. The goal of all my research is to find empirical evidence that will help policymakers design more effective public policies.
