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, health policy, and behavioral economics. Most recently, I have focused on clinical decision making by emergency physicians and its impact on patient health outcomes and healthcare costs. I conduct my research using a variety of statistical methods primarily drawn from the fields of econometrics and machine learning.

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 and subsequently worked for professional services firm Deloitte & Touche.
