Health, Labor, and Behavioral Economics
using quasi-experimental, experimental,
and structural methods
I am tackling large and interesting questions that can alter our understanding of individual health, firm, and societal welfare to inform policies for the betterment of society. Research providing an understanding of company health campaigns, social, and health insurance systems, and the media are of particular interest to me, as are the impacts of social interactions, such as peer effects in decision-making processes. The field of health economics at the intersection of labor economics is particularly fascinating as behavioral biases, perceptions, and inexperience have significant impacts on decision making and require the adoption of non-standard economic models using behavioral economics.
