I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of Utah.

My Job Market paper estimates the impact of local cost-of-living adjusted minimum wage discontinuities across state borders on infant mortality rates among lower-educated mothers (abstract can be found on my Research page).

My general research interests include the intersections of income and labor market regulations on population health, the impact of bundled payment reforms on physician consolidation, patterns in prenatal care services, the provision of adequate surgical care in lower and middle-income countries, health disparities research, cost-effectiveness analysis and health economic modeling.
