Health economics, global health policy, behavioral economics, applied econometrics, impact evaluation
I am a health economist at Stanford. Incorporating insights from behavioral economics, I study what motivates individuals to adopt risky health behaviors and which policies and interventions influence these decisions. I focus especially on chronic disease prevention in low- and middle-income countries. For my dissertation research, I conducted a randomized experiment in rural Thailand to test a novel team-based approach to smoking cessation, rooted in theory from behavioral economics. I am currently evaluating programs and policies related to tobacco cessation, nutrition, cash assistance, and workplace wellness. I hold a Ph.D. in health policy and a concurrent M.A. in economics from UC Berkeley and an M.S.P.H. in health policy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
