Institute Fellow

Since becoming a professional economist, I have focused on understanding social problems and developing productive ways to attack them. My involvement has stretched from my dissertation on youth unemployment, to public policy work on income support and youth employment programs, to analyses of unwed fathers, to promotion of homeownership vouchers, and to proposals to expand youth and adult apprenticeship. Urban has been a wonderful environment to collaborate on research and evaluations, to publish policy-relevant research, and to disseminate the findings to the research community, congressional and administrative staff, and the general public.
