Personal profile

Personal Statement

My primary fields of interest are health economics, labor economics and public economics. My research focuses on estimating the effects of public policy changes on health and labor market outcomes. The overarching theme of my previous and current research agenda is studying health and labor market effects of policy changes that alter individuals’ income security. My research has explored a variety of policies, including changes to income assistance programs, minimum wages, insurance coverage, maternal benefits, as well as sudden economic shocks.

I am happy to supervise suitably qialified PhD students in these areas; please get in touch if you want to discuss a potential research project.
