Curriculum Vitae

I am a faculty member in the Economics Department at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania. I joined Lafayette in the summer of 2023.
My primary research interests are in health and public economics, with a particular focus on income distribution and its impact on health. I explore the economics of inequality in the context of health and demographic differences, addressing policy-related questions by applying a diverse set of machine learning techniques and econometric methods, such as dynamic panel data estimators, natural experiments, and microsimulations. Although my work is grounded in sound underlying theory, I maintain a strong empirical focus, relying on data-driven approaches.
Recent research endeavors of mine span various topics. These include investigating the enduring consequences of early health disparities, analyzing health policy implications, exploring the effects of population aging, and delving into the disparities in health and economic well-being among older demographic segments.
Teaching Interests:
I enjoy teaching a range of courses, including microeconomics, health economics, the political economy of health disparities, welfare & public economics, economic development, econometrics, and applied machine learning.
When I am not working, you can find me watching English Premier League games on the weekend, working out, playing soccer, biking, or playing guitar and piano. I am an avid fan of jazz, blues, and Liverpool Football Club.
