Curriculum Vitae (233.2 KB)

I am an Associate Teaching Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Washington and I received my Ph.D. in economics in 2008 from the University of California, Berkeley.  I study the impacts of health policy on household decision-making and behavior. My economics training is in Development and Labor Economics, during which I learned to use non-experimental methods to evaluate policy impacts with survey and administrative data. Some of my most recent projects include evaluating the health and nutrition impacts of Seattle's Fresh Bucks fruit and vegetable subsidy program and of universal free school meals in the U.S.

My teaching focuses on microeconomic theory and its applications.
