I’m a a doctoral candidate at Harvard studying health policy. My research focuses on the intersection of health and welfare policy, and I draw on my training in applied political philosophy as well as empirical methods. Topics of interest include the relationship between health and economic wellbeing, the effects of public insurance on health, and mental health policy. I have previously worked at the Urban Institute and the RAND Corporation.
