About

20191002-JMP

I am a PhD job market candidate at the Vancouver School of Economics, University of British Columbia. I expect to graduate in 2020.

My research interests are in Macroeconomics and Labour Economics. My job market paper explores how increased labour market flexibility, partly due to rapid de-unionization in the mid-1980s, led productivity to become more countercyclical in the U.S. In a different paper, I examine the impact of intra-family linkages on the evolution of consumption and income inequality across generations.
