Welcome! I am a Professor in the Economics Department at Williams College, a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and the Faculty Director of the Williams-Exeter Programme at Oxford University.
I am an empirical microeconomist working in the fields of labor, health, and the economics of the family. Specific research areas include US social safety net programs with a particular focus on programs for individuals with disabilities; retirement security; and the economics of marriage and fertility decisions.
