I am a PhD candidate at the University of Oregon. My research focuses on a variety of topics concerning economic inequality. I am primarily interested in measuring and analyzing income and environmental inequality at fine geographic scales. I also have a wide ranging interest in how changes in economic inequality affect other outcomes of interest (such as political polarization).
