I am an economist with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. I received my PhD in Health Services Research (Health Economics track) from the Department of Health Law, Policy and Management at the Boston University School of Public Health.
In previous roles, I’ve served as deputy director and fellow in health policy at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, as well as a senior research assistant at the Harvard University T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Most recently, I was a graduate fellow at the Partnered Evidence-Based Resource Center (PEPReC) at the VA Boston Healthcare System.
My research has focused on various topics, including provider networks in the Medicare Advantage program, costs and quality of care in Traditional Medicare, specialty care wait times and access to care in the Veterans Health Administration, and the impact of benefit value on the mix of services used by Veterans.
