I use calibrated life-cycle models with heterogeneous households under a general equilibrium framework as a laboratory to answer both positive and normative questions in economics.
My current research examines the interaction of health, medical expenditures, and labor market risks and how they affect households' decisions, welfare, and inequality. I am also particularly interested in public programs that provide insurance against these risks.
