Curriculum Vitae

Personal Webpage

Trained as a health economist, my overarching research interests are in economic and behavioral mechanisms guiding decision-making in health and healthcare, and the impact of policies that leverage these mechanisms to improve patient outcomes and healthcare market efficiency. Methodologically, I am interested in innovatively applying advanced experimental and econometric methods to addressing understudied questions in health economics and policy. 

The first substantive area of my research is healthcare provider preferences, incentives and behavior. An ongoing line of work uses experimental economic approaches to measure social preferences of medical students and practicing physicians in the U.S. Another active area is evaluation of policies that leverage changes in physician behavior to improve patient outcomes and market efficiency. My work in this area has been funded by Russell Sage Foundation, Physicians Foundation and Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. 

The second substantive area is consumer/patient behavior in the contexts of aging, cognitive decline and end of life, with a focus on those with Alzheimer's and related dementias (ADRD). I have recently received a K01 career development award from National Institute on Aging to study reimbursement and use of advance care planning services on end-of-life care quality of ADRD patients.
