I am a health economist interested in all areas of health policy. My recent research investigates the effects of Medicaid expansion on access to treatment for opioid use disorder, the effects of medical and recreational marijuana laws on treatment and birth outcomes for pregnant women, and public policies relating to drug use during pregnancy.
I am an Assistant Professor of Economics in the Cameron School of Business at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Previously, I was a Research Economist in the Public Health Economics Program at RTI International. I received my PhD from the University of California Santa Barbara.
