I have recently completed my PhD in Economics at Queen’s University. Before embarking on my doctoral studies, I spent two years working as an economist at the Conference Board of Canada in the provincial and industrial forecast groups.
I completed a MA in Economics in 2011 from Queen’s University and a BA in Economics from the University of Ottawa in 2010.
The main focus of my research is the relationship between access to financial services and economic growth. I am interested in the impact that the introduction of non-profit credit cooperatives (the caisses populaires) had on rural outcomes in Quebec during the early 20th century.
I am also part of a research team studying segregation in the U.S. during the pre-Civil Rights era. Wo have digitized and geocoded the Green Books – a series of travel guides that gave African American motorists information on safe and welcoming establishments (hotels, restaurants, gas stations, etc.) – to construct a novel dataset that offers insights into the geography and determinants of segregation.
I have research assistantship opportunities for undergraduate students interested in economic history (quantitative) and data science. Contact me for more information.
