I'm an economist with interests in labor and macro economics. My work is particularly focused on issues to do with power and institutions in the labor market (like monopsony, unions, and the minimum wage). I've previously worked on the divergence between productivity and pay, and central bank independence.
I am an Assistant Professor in Work and Organization Studies at MIT Sloan and on the core faculty of MIT's Institute for Work and Employment Research. I am also a Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. I have a PhD in Economics from Harvard, a Masters in Public Policy from Harvard Kennedy School, and a BA in Economics from Cambridge.
