His work deals with themes such as Productivity and Estimation, which intersect with Wage. His research integrates issues of Socioeconomic status, Census and Distribution in his study of Immigration.

His most cited work include:

  • The causal effect of education on earnings (2296 citations)
  • Minimum Wages and Employment: A Case Study of the Fast Food Industry in New Jersey and Pennsylvania (1787 citations)
