Welcome to my website!
I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at Western Michigan University.
As an applied microeconomist, my main field of specialization is health economics. My research also extends across the fields of crime, aging, child and family, development, and environmental economics.
My research centers primarily on the study of the effects that public policies, high-profile events, and a changing environment have on individual behaviors.
My ongoing projects focus on the effects of youth sports participation on later in life health outcomes, the effect of indirect exposure to high-profile acts of violence on physical activity, and the effect of cigarette taxes on birth outcomes.Here is my CV.
