I am on the 2021 job market. I am a macroeconomist primarily interest in questions of growth and development and healthcare. I'm interested in combining microdata and experimental results with macroeconomic models to to better inform our understanding of these phenomena at an aggregate level. To this end, I use and develop new computational techniques to capture the high levels of heterogeneity found in microdata.
