I am a 5th year student in the University of Kentucky's Economics PhD program. My research is focused on economic sanctions, both measuring their effect on trade flows as well as their impact on civil liberties in the targeted countries. I am interested in sanctions because of their prevalence as a foreign policy tool for the United States and a growing number of other countries. I am also passionate about teaching, providing students with economic theory and practical skills that will benefit them in their lives and careers. 


I will be on the job market in 2019 and interviewing at the ASSA meetings in Atlanta.
