Bio/Research

Academic Background: BA (McMaster University), MA (Simon Fraser University), PhD (McMaster University).

.My current research focuses mainly on explaining the factors that determine student academic outcomes. I have published work that measures the effect of school entry policy on short and long-term student achievement. Other recent work identifies the effect of school principals on student outcomes, whether school quality information shocks affect student mobility between schools, and whether longer exposure to kindergarten improves future achievement. I am also working on research that measures the effect of neighbourhood demographics on charitable donations, and the effect of taxes on smoking behaviour.
