Ben Blemings, Ph.D. (Economics)
I am a postdoc at Cornell University's Center for Veterinary Business and Entrepreneurship (CVBE). The CVBE is a joint venture between the College of Population Medicine and the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management. My role at the center is managing panel data and making causal inferences from the limited observational data available that relates to the economics of veterinary medicine. I am working on effects of private equity veterinary practice acquisitions, the Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program, and how human vaccine news affects veterinarian businesses. I am also continuing my research on education, health, labor, and other applied microeconomics topics.
I enjoy training service dogs and sports, particularly soccer or basketball.
