My research is in labor economics, the economics of marriage and the family, and policy issues relating to poverty. Current projects examine the effects of changing economic conditions on living arrangements among young people, the effects of competition on educational outcomes, and issues of child support enforcement. My research on educational outcomes includes a study of the effects of Milwaukee’s public school choice program on student achievement.
