Health economics, global health policy, applied econometrics, behavioral economics, impact evaluation
I study what motivates individuals to adopt risky health behaviors and which policy interventions influence these health decisions. I focus particularly on chronic disease risk factors in low- and middle-income countries, and much of my work incorporates insights from behavioral economics. As part of my dissertation research, I ran a randomized field experiment in rural villages of Thailand to test a novel team-based approach to smoking cessation, rooted in behavioral economics theory. 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.
