My research focuses on behavioral health economics and health policy. My recent work has touched on many topics including examining geographic and ethic disparities in health outcomes, optimal insurance benefit design, the impact of health on education, and most prominently, how economic incentives can affect healthy behaviors and health status.
Behavioral health economics, pharmaceutical economics, comparative effectiveness, insurance benefit design, determinants of health.
