I am a PhD candidate in Health Services Research (Health Economics track) in the Department of Health Law, Policy and Management at the Boston University School of Public Health. In addition, I am a graduate fellow at the Partnered Evidence-Based Resource Center (PEPReC) at the VA Boston Healthcare System, and a consultant at Novocardia.
Previously, I 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.
My current research interests are varied and include analyses of 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 role of benefit value in affecting the mix of services used by Veterans.
