Biography

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Murphy Institute and Department of Economics at Tulane University. I graduated with a Ph.D. in economics from Northern Illinois University in 2017. My research interest lies at the intersection of health, labor and development economics. My recent works examined the effects of prescription drug insurance on older patients' health behaviors, and the long term and the intergenerational human capital effects of early exposure to adverse shocks and investments in child health inputs. Currently, I am examining the effect of policies and regulations that changed parents and health care providers’ health behavior on child health endowment.
