About Me

I am an economic historian with research focusing on migration, especially during the Age of Mass Migration, as well as on health in the nineteenth-century US.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at Vanderbilt University and a Faculty Research Fellow of the Development of the American Economy Program at the NBER. I completed my PhD in Economics at Northwestern University in 2016 and my BSFS in International Economics at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in 2010.

For academic year 2019-2020, I was on leave from Vanderbilt as a W. Glenn Campbell and Rita Ricardo-Campbell National Fellow and the William C. Bark National Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. During academic year 2020-2021, I was a Visiting Scholar at the Opportunity and Inclusive Growth Institute at the Federal Reserve bank of Minneapolis. During academic year 2022-2023, I was the Director of the Honors Program in the Department of Economics at Vanderbilt University.
