I do research at the Center for Economic and Policy Research, which is sometimes posted on the CEPR website. This has focused on making visualizations and tools to illustrate labor market data, argue for more equitable policies, or debunk myths (e.g. that minimum wages correlate with higher unemployment, that certain industries face labor shortages, or that robots are taking our jobs).

I also am a contributor for The Minskys.
