In 2020, I launched the first newsletter for the Department of Economics at the University of South Carolina, "News from the Southwest Corner".
Prior to arriving at the University of South Carolina, I completed a post-doctoral fellowship at UC Davis that was joint between their Economics Department and Medical Center (T32, federally-funded).
During my fellowship, I worked with physicians and individuals at the UC Davis Center for Healthcare Policy and Research.
My research interests center around the hospital setting, with a focus on issues related to U.S. emergency departments.
