Ben Blemings, Ph.D. (Economics)
I am a postdoc at Cornell University's Center for Veterinary Business and Entrepreneurship (CVBE). 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 the relationship between human and pet health behaviors. I am also continuing my research on other applied microeconomics topics, such as education and violence.
I enjoy training service dogs and sports, particularly soccer or basketball.
