I am a development economist studying demography and health in low income countries. Current work focuses on distinguishing between the roles of childhood morbidity and mortality on population growth, human capital accumulation and lifelong health, and the consequences these have for economic development, especially in the context of sub-Saharan Africa. 
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 associate professor at Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut teaching undergraduate economics.
