I start as an Assistant Professor at Central European University, Department of Economics and Business, in September 2020.

I obtained my PhD in Economics from the Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia in 2017. My research interests are in Applied Microeconomics, including Labor and Health Economics, and Economics of Education. You can find my CV here.

I research parents’ intra-household time allocation decisions, focusing on parental quality time, and the implications for early childhood development. I also research the effect of academic redshirting on student and mental health outcomes. I published in the Journal of Health Economics on the relationship of private physician payments to Medicare (with Joshua Gottlieb and Jeffrey Clemens).

Find more information on my research on parental time allocation, academic redshirting, and physician payments on the above links.
