I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics on the 2021-2022 economics job market. I study at George Mason University and am a Fellow in the F.A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.  

My research focuses on political economy, economic sociology, Austrian economics, and applied microeconomics, particularly as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic. My dissertation is focused on exploring the COVID-19 pandemic through the political, social, and economic lens, and my committee chairman is Virgil Storr. 

My work has been published by Cambridge, The Review of Austrian Economics, Studies in Comparative International Development, and Routledge, and is currently under review at several journals, including Constitutional Political Economy. I'm currently working on several projects on the economic and political consequences of COVID-19 policies, including the political incentives of mask mandates and the disruption to commercial relationships following shutdowns. 

I received my B.A. in politics and economics from Hillsdale College (2018), an M.A. in economics from George Mason University (2020),  and Ph.D. (2022, expected) in economics from George Mason University. 

I hearken from the Midwest. When I'm not reading, researching, or teaching, I love to ski, bake cheesecake, and take my dog, Nora, on walks.
