Biography: 

Courses normally taught: Introduction to Macroeconomics, Econometrics, Evolution of the Western Economy.

I have also taught courses in gender and economics, the evolution of social policy, and the Great Depression and 20th century economic history.

Research: 

My research is mainly focused on labor markets and female labor supply in early-twentieth-century Britain, with a particular interest in poverty and the household dynamics of labor supply. I have published one article exploring the origins and impact of early minimum-wage legislation in Britain, and another on the determinants of female labor supply in interwar London. My current works in progress include examinations of the work and wages of female home workers around the turn of the 20th century, household labor supply in interwar London, and the labor market impact of transportation and commuting patterns in 1930s London. Most recently, I have begun a new research project exploring female labor during and after the First World War in Britain.

Selected publications:

“The Trade Boards Act of 1909 and the Alleviation of Household Poverty” (with George Boyer), British Journal of Industrial Relations, vol. 47, 2 (June 2009).

“’To help keep the home going’: Female Labor Supply in Interwar London” forthcoming, Economic History Review (2014).

B.A., University of Missouri; M.S., Wright State University; Ph.D., American University
Research: 

My current research is on the political economy of Social Security reform. The Social Security Amendments of 1939 put the program on its modern trajectory. A pay-as-you-go approach to financing the program was firmly established and benefits were granted to spouses of retired workers and to dependents of deceased workers. These changes were made based on the recommendations of an Advisory Council on Social Security that was composed of members representing employers, employees, and the public. Two prominent economists of the period, Paul Douglas and Alvin Hansen, were among those members of the council chosen to represent the public.

I am currently involved in investigating their role in shaping the council's recommendations. I am particularly interested in how their views of the economic issues of the day shaped their analysis of the council's work.
