My work focuses on labor economics, along with health economics, public finance, and political economy. Some of my current areas of research include minimum wage effects on employment and inequality; the role of fairness concerns at the workplace; the nature and extent of competition in the labor market; the interplay of behavioral biases and labor market competition; the impact of fiscal policy in local labor markets; and the role of firm wage policies in explaining the growth in inequality. I have also conducted research on employer health mandates; unions and collective bargaining; outsourcing and sub-contracting; gun laws and violence; capitalization of private information in stock prices. I received my B.A. in Economics and M.A. in Development Policy from Stanford University, and my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Chicago. Previously, I held positions of visiting Professor at MIT Department of Economics, and Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. I am also currently a research associate at NBER and a research fellow at IZA.
