I am a physician and Assistant Professor of Medicine and Health Policy at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and a Senior Fellow at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics.

My research uses insights from health economics, applied microeconomics, clinical medicine, and the biomedical sciences to assess drivers of health and socioeconomic inequality, including the role of early childhood investments, economic opportunities, social events, and public policies. Across all areas, an interest of mine is to develop or apply research designs that can yield causal answers to otherwise difficult research questions.
