I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at George Mason University and 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 and is currently under review at several journals, including Constitutional Political Economy, The Review of Austrian Economics, Rationality and Society, and Studies in Comparative International Development. 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 (2019), and Ph.D. (2023, 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.
