Curriculum Vitae

I am an associate professor at Harvard Kennedy School of Government and a faculty research fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). My research studies health care markets, with topics at the intersection of health, industrial organization, and public economics. Much of my work focuses on competition and policy design in health insurance markets, particularly in public programs like the Massachusetts/ACA health insurance exchanges and Medicaid managed care.

I received a PhD in economics from Harvard University (2015) and an A.B. in applied math from Harvard (2008). I was a Post-doctoral Fellow (in Aging and Health Economics) at the NBER during the 2015-16 academic year before starting as an assistant professor in 2016-17. Before graduate school, I spent a year working at the Brookings Institution's Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform (2008-09). 

I am married (to Annetta Zhou) and have two daughters (Lillian and Lulu). My Christian faith is an important aspect of my life. For more about this personal story, please see this article
