I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at Vanderbilt University and a Faculty Affiliate of the Center for Research on Inequality and Health and the Climate, Energy, and Environment Forum. I am also a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research. I received my Ph.D. in Economics in 2017 from Brown University.
I am an applied microeconomist. My research broadly focuses on determinants of child health and well-being, with a particular focus on environmental exposures and the effectiveness of regulation.
Some of my recent research seeks to quantify the direct health impacts of important sources of pollution, such as leaking underground storage tanks, lead service lines, and drinking water contamination. Other work measures the effectiveness of regulation and the role of behavioral responses, focusing on maritime emission regulation and public notification requirements, for example. My research has been published in leading peer-reviewed journals, including the Review of Economics and Statistics, American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, Journal of Human Resources, Journal of Health Economics, and Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists.
