Bio and CV

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Health Policy and Management at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. My research interests lie broadly in the fields of health economics and policy, behavioral economics and applied econometrics. I am particularly interested in leveraging large-scale administrative data, including electronic health records and health insurance claims, to explore clinical decision-making by health care providers and its impact on patient health outcomes.

I received my PhD in public policy from Harvard University, where I focused on the fields of health and behavioral economics. Prior to beginning my doctoral studies, I was a Research Associate at the University of Chicago Crime Lab, and received a master's degree from the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy. A Los Angeles-area native, I obtained my undergraduate degree from UCLA in business-economics and history.
