I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of California, Davis. My research is rooted in the field of labor economics and focusses on topics related to international migration, farm labor, and economic development. My job market paper examines the extent to which changes in the farm labor supply affect the production of hand-harvested fruits and vegatables in California. I am an affiliate of the U.C. Davis Global Migration Center, where I also serve as a student 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.
