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. My dissertation work focuses on the effects of vaccination policies on health and health behaviors.
