Research Interest: I am interesting in finding efficient and feasible ways for governments and nonprofits to institute policies that help people who are left behind by our current economic system. Things like adequate and affordable transportation and housing are important and large issues that can only really be solved by large-scale policy solutions. I hope that better policies could create a more equitable, livable, and indeed productive world, with an adequate standard of living even for those at the bottom. These interests are still emerging, but urban studies and poverty traps are at least two things interesting to me.
