I am currently a PhD candidate in economics at the University of Toronto and am on the 2022-2023 market. I am available for an interview at your convenience.
My job market paper studies the effects of cognitive-behavioral therapy on incarcerated offenders using novel micro data.
My current research agenda focuses on ways to encourage inmates' social reintegration through, for instance, rehabilitation programs and supervised transition. More broadly, I am interested in the economics of crime and education, and labor economics.

Work in progress
I developed and taught the course Introduction to Policy Evaluation, in which students are introduced to econometric methods such as difference-in-differences, instrumental variables and regression discontinuity. During the semester, the students dive into quantitative research by watching interviews I conducted with researchers. I am currently teaching this course for the second time.
I was also the main instructor for a course on Economics and crime.
Syllabi are available upon request.
