Ph.D. University of Illinois (2017)
I will join Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as an Assistant Professor of Economics in Fall 2017. My research interests include health economics and public policy. My current work examines how government insurance programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid, may help improve people's access to health care services and health outcomes. This line of research provides policy-makers with a substantive evaluation of the costs and benefits of different types of health policies and regulations in the United States.
