I work broadly in the field of American poverty and anti-poverty policy. Currently I am examining determinants of compliance with child support orders using administrative data for Washington state. I am part of a team working on an evaluation of the city of Seattle's recently enacted minimum wage ordinance, which has established the highest minimum ($15/hour) in the nation.
