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

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.
