I am a development economist studying demography and health with a focus on sub-Saharan Africa. Current work focuses on distinguishing between the roles of disease-caused morbidity and mortality on population growth, human capital accumulation and lifelong health, and the consequences these have for economic development.
Some recent research investigates the link between population health and economic development locally, specifically the issue of food deserts in Bridgeport, CT. 
I am an assistant professor at Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut teaching undergraduate economics.
