Senior Lecturer, University of Washington

I am an economist who studies household decision-making regarding health, migration, education, and fertility. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California in 2008, where I wrote my dissertation about health and education. Shortly after, I joined the Daniel J. Evans School of Public Policy and Governance at the University of Washington as a post-doctoral researcher, and I have worked as a faculty member in the University of Washington Department of Economics since 2011. My research analyzes the impacts of public policies in the U.S. and Mexico on household and individual economic behaviors.
