Hi, and welcome to my website! I am a health economist who works at the intersection of economics, data science, and policy analysis.
My research is concerned with two main questions. First, how should health care resources be allocated in a given policy context. Second, how should health systems be designed so that health care resources are optimally allocated? Much of my current research consequently focuses on cost-effectiveness analysis, estimating the burden of disease, and understanding how public policy can align medical costs with the benefits of care. I am particularly interested in the methodological tools needed to answer these questions including simulation modeling, causal inference, Bayesian statistics, and econometric techniques more generally.
In my free time, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my wife Jennifer. In my pre-PhD life, I was a rather unsuccessful collegiate baseball player at UC San Diego
whose career was cut short by a shoulder injury. I still enjoy trying to relive my days as an athlete by playing sports when my shoulder permits (usually basketball).
I also somehow enjoy lifting up heavy objects and then putting them back down.
