I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in economics at the University of Pittsburgh focusing on research and policy questions in education and diversity. I earned my undergraduate degree in applied economics and marketing from HEC Montréal, my Master of Economics from the University of New Hampshire, and my PhD in economics from the University of Alabama.

I am currently investigating the evolution of racial disparity in incarceration rates over time and across state for both men and women. 

My broad research interests include economics of education, labor economics, economics of diversity, and applied micro-econometrics.
