I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of Warwick. I am also affiliated with the Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy (CAGE).

My research interests lie at the intersection of labor economics and economic history.
I have collected individual casualty records for almost 1 million U.S. soldiers from the Civil War, and the two world wars. I use those casualty shocks as natural experiments and combine them with other U.S. data sets to study topics related to African American economic progress during and after WWII, or the long-run outcomes of children who lost a father in the Civil War, among others.

I am on the job market in 2018/19 and will attend the,
EALE meeting, September 13-15th, 2018, Lyon
EEA meeting, December 6-7th, 2018, Naples
ASSA/AEA meeting, January 4-6th, 2019, Atlanta
