My research spans Labour Economics, Public Economics and Econometrics. My current research projects mainly focus on the impact of cash welfare programs on child welfare and outcomes, with a particular emphasis on welfare-to-work programs. I also have work analysing the household's role in child development and inequality in adult outcomes, as well as a number of projects that develop econometric techniques for applied work.
