I'm a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at the University of Michigan, with research interests focused on topics in public policy, health, and labor economics.
My job market paper studies the impact of Medicaid on children’s educational attainment. Using a discontinuity in federal law combined with novel administrative data, my findings suggest that Medicaid eligibility improves the high school graduation rates of male children. These results imply that access to healthcare is complementary to children’s human capital formation, and are consistent with recent evidence showing broad and persistent effects of Medicaid expansions.
I will be joining the University of Chicago Urban Labs as a Research Director in August.
