I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Resource Economics at UMass Amherst. My research examines the roles of information and cost in shaping health care decisions, and I also have ongoing projects exploring how public policies and social comparisons affect self-image, attitudes toward beauty, and weight-related behaviors. My work has appeared in outlets such as Journal of Health Economics, American Journal of Health Economics, and Industrial and Labor Relations Review. I earned my PhD from Vanderbilt University in 2021.
