Department of Economics, University of Manitoba


I am an Assistant Professor in Economics at the University of Manitoba. I recieved my PhD from Washington University in St. Louis and hold a Graduate Certificate in New Institutional Social Sciences from the Center for New Institutional Social Sciences. My research interests include family migration and proximity, women's labour force status, economic demography and related labour topics.

What's New

Ryan and I have started a blog on hockey and economics. Check it out! Hockey Night in Headingley.

Starting back to class on Monday (Jan. 6th). It's going to be a busy semester!

Current Research

I am currently working on two projects. The first looks at the link between tipping and discrimination in the labour force. The second, joint with Lindsay Tedds, examines the effect of economic policy on the seasonality of births. I'll post working papers when available.
