I am an associate professor of Economics at Middlebury College. My research falls in the areas of Labor and Development Economics under the umbrella of Economics and Gender. As an applied micro economist, I use data analysis to explore the interrelated choices individuals and households make about education, work, and fertility. I am particularly interested in how the policy environment people face shapes or constrains their behavior. The policy contexts I have examined span paid leave, reproductive health, and most recently the environment.
