About Me

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.

In academic year 2019-2020, I will be 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.

I am an economic historian with research focusing on health in the nineteenth-century US and on the Age of Mass Migration.
