I am a global health economist who studies the causes of population health improvement in resource-constrained settings using methods from applied microeconometrics. My research focuses on several areas of population health and noncommunicable diseases (NCDs):

  1. population-level causes and consequences of NCDs
  2. effective public health policies for NCD prevention and treatment
  3. health system financing and readiness for NCDs

I am currently a National Institute on Aging T32 postdoctoral scholar in the Demography Department at the University of California, Berkeley. I completed my Ph.D. in Health Policy (Economics) and M.S. in Statistics at Stanford University.
