I am Associate Professor in the Department of Economics in the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia. I also hold an appointment as a research economist with the Center for Enterprise Dissemination - Disclosure Avoidance at the U.S. Census Bureau, and am a fellow of the Global Labor Organization and the Labor Dynamics Institute. My research focuses on how regulations and social institutions affect earnings and job mobility. I have studied job referral networks, compensating differentials, racial discrimination, the gender wage gap, and the effects of minimum wages on turnover. I also study data privacy, focusing on the trade-off between privacy and accuracy in the publication of official statistics.
