Welcome to my website. I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at University of Wisconsin, Madison. My research interests are Public Finance, Labor, Development and Applied Econometrics.
My dissertation investigates economic and social determinants of income inequality and intergenerational mobility. In my job market paper I look at the effect of credit constraints on college choice. I develop a lifecycle model, where I take into account the existing government student loan program and tuition and college quality variation across states, and quantify the effect of the credit constraints on the college quality choice margin. My second chapter looks at the effect of timing of investment in children on the intergenerational mobility and economic growth. My third chapter studies peer effects of immigrant children in US classrooms.
I am a graduate fellow at Institute for Research on Poverty. During the summer 2016 I was CSWEP Fellow at Bureau of Labor Statistics, Office of Productivity and Technology. Previously I worked at the World Bank and Safra National Bank of New York. In my research I leverage both the public policy making experience, as well as the commercial banking experience to study determinants and consequences of investment in Human Capital.
