I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Purdue University. I received my Ph.D. and M.A. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania. My research focuses broadly on macroeconomics, public economics, health economics, and labor economics. I am particularly interested in understanding the economic effects of taxation and health policies, as well as the optimal design of government policies.
