I am an associate professor within the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University. I am also a nonresident senior fellow in Economic Studies at the Brookings Institution, and a research fellow with the Institute for Economic Equity at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. I serve as a member of the leadership advisory group for the Benefits21 program at the Aspen Institute.

My research interests lie within labor and applied microeconomics, with an emphasis on economic instability, intergenerational mobility, poverty, racial economic inequality, and young adult socio-economic outcomes.

I am also interested in the changing role and impact of government tax and transfer programs on a range of socio-economic outcomes, including poverty, income instability and intergenerational mobility.

At Georgetown, I teach courses on microeconomics and public finance.  I am an elected member of the National Academy of Social Insurance, and I serve as the elected Secretary on the executive board of the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management. I also serve as a co-editor at Contemporary Economic Policy and the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management.
