Department of Health Services, Policy & Practice at the Brown University School of Public Health. I received my Ph.D. in Health Services Research, with a concentration in health economics. My research interests lie in Health Policy Evaluation, the Economics of Mental Health and Cost-Effectiveness and Cost-of-Illness Analysis. Most of my doctoral work focused on the impact of mental health policy on health service utilization and labor market outcomes. As of June 2014, I will be working as a research economist in the Division for Health Services and Social Policy Research at RTI International.
While at Brown, I was a Pre-Doctoral Fellow in the Global Health Economics and Outcomes Research division of Pfizer from 2011-2012 and an Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality trainee from 2012-2013. Since 2013, I have also been working as a reviewer for the Cost-Effectiveness Analysis Registry at the Center for the Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health at Tufts Medical Center.
