- B.A., Economics, University of California, Los Angeles
- Ph.D., Economics, Harvard University
I received B.A. in Economics from UCLA, and M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from Harvard University
I am interested in understanding how various institutions, which societies evolve to deal with the problems their populations face, interact with the cultural and legal environments. My recent research focuses on the impact of unionism on the local labor market, especially on income inequality and on economic mobility.
Before I join the University of Utah, I taught econometrics and principles of microeconomics and macroeconomics at Harvard University. I also taught principles of microeconomics, principles of macroeconomics, and Economics of Education at Wellesley College.
