Welcome to my webpage! I am currently a postdoctoral research associate in the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My research interests lie in the economics of food policy, demand and price analysis, and applied econometrics. My current research is primarily focused on evaluating the effects of national and targeted price-based policy interventions aimed at improving food purchase patterns and dietary quality in the United States, as well as policy-driven questions centered around the causal effects of food assistance programs and other social policies on welfare and diet-related outcomes.
