I’m a PhD candidate in Economics at Stanford University. My research interests span public economics, household finance, and labor economics. Examining the determinants of poverty and opportunity is my research agenda.

I have served as the teaching assistant of Economics 241 (graduate-level Public Economics I) in 2018 and 2019 for Prof. Caroline Hoxby (Economics Department, Stanford University). 

At Stanford I am a graduate affiliate of the Cities, Housing and Society Lab and the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) and previously of the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (PACS) and the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society.

I am an alumnus of Opportunity Insights and was a Predoctoral Fellow at both SIEPR and the Harvard Lab for Economic Applications and Policy (LEAP) for 2015–16. I’m also a former research assistant (economist) of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in Washington, DC, for 2012–2015; a Fulbright Postgraduate at University College London (UCL) for 2011–2012; and a research associate of the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) in Berhampur, Hyderabad, and Delhi, India, for 2010–2011.

My name is pronounced ˈtrehvur ˈbaykur, and I use he/him pronouns.
