PhD candidate at Department of Economics, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
I am on the job market in the 2019-2020 academic year. I will be available for interviews at the EEA Job Market Meeting in Rotterdam.
My research interests are labor and development economics, with a focus on crime, conflict, and racial discrimination in the justice system. One strand of my research explores the institutional origins of the black and white incarceration gap. In particular, I study the role of slavery on black incarceration in the US by using census and historical records. In addition, I study how conflict affects local institutions, as well as the consequences of having natural resources on crime.
