About Me

I am currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of Toronto.

My research focuses on the socio-economics of neighbourhood change with an emphasis on the spatial organization of labour markets. My current research agenda involves focusing on the externalities generated by changing aspects of the labor market and the built environment. My job market paper in particular, focuses on the dynamics of neighbourhood change within New York City and the extent to which changes to housing demand are driven by the spatial organization of labor demand.

I am on the job market this year. I will be available for interviews at the CEEE meetings in Toronto in December 2016, as well as the AEA/ASSA meetings in Chicago in January 2017.
