I am a micro-economist, with research interests in applied econometrics, and in social policy. I examine policies that impact demographically and economically vulnerable populations. I am also interested in the relationship between the economic environment and health outcomes. Finally, my research works to build and expand the econometric toolkit used to answer social science and public policy questions.
