I am a fourth year Economics PhD Student at the University of Oregon. My research centers on distributional analysis, focusing on income and consumption inequality as well as inequality in environmental amenities and health outcomes. I am particularly interested in measuring inequality at relatively coarse geographic scales - at the state, MSA or county level.
