I am a health economist and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Population Health Sciences at Weill Cornell Medical College, Cornell University.
My overarching research interests are in economic and behavioral mechanisms guiding decision-making in health and healthcare, and the impact of policies that leverage these mechanisms to improve patient outcomes and healthcare market efficiency. Methodologically, I am interested in innovatively applying advanced experimental and econometric methods to addressing understudied questions in health economics and policy.
I have received funding support as PI from sources including the NIH, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Weill Cornell Medicine, Russell Sage Foundation, and Cornell Center for Social Sciences. My first-authored publications have appeared in journals including Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Health Economics, Demography, and Medical Care Research and Review.
I received a PhD in Health Economics and MA in Economics from University of California, Berkeley, and an MA in International Comparative Education from Stanford University.
