I am an empirical microeconomist who uses observational and experimental data to advance our understanding of labor supply, cognition, and learning. In one stream of research, I design and run laboratory and field experiments to investigate effort provision, cognitive limitations, and learning. In a second stream of research, I use observational data to understand how the labor supply of individuals and households responds to social insurance, social assistance, and pension policies. I then leverage the results to identify effective policy reforms.
I am the Magner Chair and an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics and the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University. I am a Faculty Affiliate of the Purdue Integrative Data Science Initiative and the Purdue Policy Research Institute. I am also a Research Fellow of IZA and DIW. My teaching interests include labor economics and applied econometrics.
