I am an applied policy researcher who studies the economics of risky behaviors and substance use, with an emphasis on how public policies shape health outcomes within the United States. My recent work investigates the effects of recent drug policy innovations as well as the intersection between housing policy and risky behaviors.

My work has been published in journals such as: The Journal of Law and Economics, JAMA Internal Medicine, Health Economics, Health Services Research, and Health Affairs. It has also been featured in media outlets such as: The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Hill, The Guardian, BBC Radio, CNN, and Forbes.

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at Indiana University’s O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs and expect to earn my Ph.D. in Public Affairs in May of 2023.

I will be joining Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of Public Policy as an assistant professor in the fall of 2023.
