PhD candidate in Health Policy & Economics

University of Michigan


Welcome! I am a fourth year doctoral candidate in health policy and economics at the University of Michigan. My research is focused on evaluating health care policies and programs aimed to control US health care spending. My primary research examines a policy to regulate hospital prices in the State of Oregon. I study the effect of the policy on hospital prices, enrollee out-of-pocket spending, enrollee service use, and hospital behavior. In other work, I examine the spending consequences of Medicare Advantage.

My research has been published in peer-reviewed journals including Health Affairs, JAMA Health Forum, and The Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law.

Prior to my doctoral training, I served as a research assistant to Dr. Robert Berenson. I received a graduate degree in public policy from Georgetown University and a bachelor’s degree in human biology from Stanford University.
