I am a Financial Economist in the Office of Tax Analysis at the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
I received a PhD in 2022 from the University of Michigan, joint between the Department of Economics and the Ross School of Business' Department of Business Economics and Public Policy. Prior to grad school, I worked for several years in economic consulting at The Brattle Group, and received a B.S. in Economics from George Washington University.
I work on taxes. My job market paper studied the connection between the U.S. tax system and a recent increase in U.S. citizenship renunciation. In other work, alongside great co-authors, I study non-monetary tax enforcement tools, including the IRS program restricting passport access to seriously delinquent debtors, and the California Franchise Tax Board's publication of its Top 500 largest tax delinquencies.
I am currently working on several new research projects (again with great co-authors!):
Understanding the use of Cost-Sharing Arrangements for international profit shifting.
Documenting how family income changes in the years when children begin attending college.
Studying how taxes affect the returns to innovation (and how that has changed over time).
