I am an Assistant Professor at the Frost School of Business at Centenary College of Louisiana since Fall 2021. Previously, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania. I received my PhD in Economics from Southern Methodist University in Texas in August 2020.
   As an applied economist, I utilize lab and field experiments, as well as survey data to answer questions in behavioral and labor economics, with a focus on gender and management and leadership.

   My mantra is: when it comes to understanding and changing human behavior, we can do better
                                              (Mind, Society and Behavior: The World Development Report 2015).
 
   With this in mind, I have delved into better understanding behavior in labor markets, education and health and am passionate about identifying policy prescriptions for creating better work environments.
