I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of California, Davis. My research covers topics in the fields of labor, agricultural, and development economics. My dissertation examines how changes in the immigrant labor force affect various outcomes in low-skilled sectors of the U.S. economy. I am currently studying how the decreasing farm labor supply is affecting farming decisions and labor-intensive agricultural production in California. I am an affiliate of the U.C. Davis Global Migration Center, where I also serve as an administrative coordinator organizing interdisciplinary workshops for graduate students engaged in migration-related research. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Economics (with highest honors) in 2015 and a Master's Degree in Agricultural and Resource Economics in 2016 (both from U.C. Davis). I currently live in Roseville, California, with my wife Rebekah and our little dog Chloe.
