I am a health economist, broadly interested in the relationships between health policies, health care utilization, and health outcomes and inequalities. The primary focus of my current work is disparities in utilization and effectiveness of pharmaceutical therapies used throughout the care trajectory of Alzheimer's disease patients. My teaching interests include health economics and health policy, quantitative methods, and applied microeconomics.
