My research focuses on questions of migration/mobility and labor market outcome. In particular, one stream of my research investigates the intersection of migration / geographical variation and employment; how labor market factors influence domestic migration, how the geographical mismatch between job seekers and job opportunities causes unemployment, and how startups’ employment growth differs across economic regions. Another stream of my research probes deeply into topics related to women / family and labor market performance, examining the dual-earner households’ work-household responsibilities and U.S. immigrant women’s occupational mobility. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Planning and Public Policy from the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. I am also working as a Graduate Research Assistant at the Social Policy and Family Well-being Lab.
