I am an applied microeconomist specializing health and labor economics, having earned my PhD in Economics from Vanderbilt University in August of 2021. My recent scholarship examines ways to improve HPV vaccination, including school vaccine requirements and increased insurance coverage. I have also written on the implications of immigration policies for vulnerable populations.

In ongoing work, I am exploring how policies improving HPV vaccination may affect later health decisions, the effects of state restrictions on indoor tanning, and how social comparisons influence dieting behaviors.
