I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at Harvard University. After graduating from Wellesley College in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Economics, I worked as a senior analyst at Analysis Group in Boston, where I focused on health economics, epidemiology, and health outcomes research in the Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR) practice. Subsequently, I was a full-time research assistant at Yale University, the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR), and the National Bureau of Economics Research (NBER), working on research in health economics and applied econometrics.
My current research interests include topics in health economics, public finance, and labor economics. I am particularly interested in provider behavior (e.g., diagnosing, prescribing, learning) within the health care system, as well as socioeconomic determinants of health.
