I research human capital, redistribution, discrimination, & political economy.

So far my research has explored the effects of merit scholarship offers on college choice and degree attainment, the impact of salient information about rural poverty on voting patterns, the influence of online course offerings on human capital accumulation and long-run earnings, and the effect of ageist language on job applications.
