Hello, and welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Administration and Policy at the University of Georgia, specializing in the fields of health economics and applied microeconomics. I earned my Ph.D. in Economics from Vanderbilt University in August 2018.

I’m particularly interested in analyzing the effects of public policies on maternal and child health. I also have a body of work examining the effects of vaccination policies on health and health behaviors.
