Welcome to my Website! I am a postdoctoral Fellow at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics, Wharton, and the Penn Injury Science Center at the University of Pennsylvania. 

I am a health economist whose specific research interests center around questions that relate to the impact of regulations and interventions on individuals’ healthcare utilization and risky health behaviors.  To this end I investigated demand responses in the healthcare market (and risky health behaviors) across an array of policies. Understanding how and why health behavior changes are an important problem in our society because negative health behaviors lead to large economic and societal costs. 

I am currently on the job search for a new position beginning summer or fall 2018.   Please see my updated CV for latest information on all of my work.
