Welcome to my website. I am an assistant professor of economics at the University of British Columbia. My research interests are in urban economics and transportation, and my projects often involve collaborating with technology firms.

I received my PhD from the University of Toronto in 2013, and worked as an assistant professor of real estate at UC Berkeley before joining UBC in 2020. I am on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Economic Geography, and a consultant for the World Bank. My research has been funded by the SSHRC, the NSF, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and it regularly features in the popular press.

In the summer of 2023, I will be visiting the EIEF in Rome.
