I am a third year PhD student at Vanderbilt University specializing in health and labor economics. My research focuses on the welfare and behavioral implications of immigration policies for vulnerable populations.

Currently, I am examining how employment verification (E-Verify) mandates affect health insurance coverage among likely-unauthorized immigrants. In prior work, I examined immigrant disemployment effects from minimum wage increases, as well as how changes in migrant composition and internal enforcement policies have attenuated these effects over the last decade.
