My work lies in the field of macroeconomics with inequality. I focus on questions related to the analysis of risk and inequality at the micro level, and on the role of labor markets, public policy, and the family in both mitigating individual risk and shaping the observed inequality. In order to find answers to those and related questions, I typically analyze micro data sets from various administrative and survey sources using both parametric and non-parametric empirical methods, which I combine with quantitative structural models.
