I am an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at The Ohio State University.
My areas of specialization are health economics and public economics. My research focuses on the role of public policy and innovation in health care markets. Recent projects have focused on the effect of financial incentives in pharmaceutical research and the selection of patients who comply with health recommendations.
I earned my PhD in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2020 and a B.S. in both mathematics and biochemistry summa cum laude from Washington and Lee University in 2013. In between, I spent two years as a research assistant at the National Bureau of Economic Research.
