About Me.

Postdoctoral Associate at Joan & Sanford I. Weill Medical College of Cornell University. Research affiliate with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs Health Services Research and Development Service, and the Center for Health Economics of Treatment Interventions for Substance Use Disorder, HCV, and HIV (CHERISH).

I hold a PhD in Economics from the University of Utah, and trained as a health economist in the Health Economics Core of the Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences, University of Utah School of Medicine.

My research interests include the social determinants of health, economic dimensions of substance use disorders, and the societal burden of preterm births. I have also researched the impact of bundled payment reforms on physician consolidation, the provision of adequate surgical care in lower and middle-income countries (particularly Ghana), and cost-effectiveness of orphan drugs and universal newborn screening for genetic disorders.
