About Me

I am an assistant professor of economics at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University, and a member of the Rutgers Climate Institute. I hold a PhD in Economics from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. 

Half of my research is focused on understanding the causes and consequences of inequality and assessing and designing remedies to address inequality. The other half of my work is dedicated to climate change and environmental policy. Of course, the two are deeply intertwined. My first book, The Ends of Freedom: Reclaiming America’s Lost Promise of Economic Rights, with Chicago University Press, will be published in May, 2023.
