I am a research economist at Statistics Canada. I hold a PhD in Economics from the University of Toronto, supervised by Shari Eli, Kory Kroft, and Michael Baker. My main research interests are in Labour and Public Economics. I am particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms underlying the intergenerational transmission of earnings and the policy levers available to influence intergenerational income inequality.
I am originally from Ottawa, Ontario, and I hold Undergraduate (University of Ottawa) and Masters (University of Toronto) degrees in Economics. Along the way, I worked as an Economist at the Centre for the Study of Living Standard, a Policy Analyst implementing nudges at the Canada Revenue Agency, and an Analyst conducting visa screening at the Canada Border Services Agency.
