Hello, and welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Administration and Policy at the University of Georgia, and a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research. I earned my Ph.D. in Economics from Vanderbilt University in August 2018.

I specialize in the fields of health economics and applied microeconomics. I’m particularly interested in analyzing the effects of public policies on maternal and child health, as well as examining the effects of vaccination policies on health and health behaviors.
