Welcome to my website!

I am a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at CESR in University of Southern California and University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, a Faculty Affiliate with the Georgia Policy Labs, and a RCMAR Scholar with the Minority Aging Health Economics Research Center at the USC Schaeffer Center. I received my Ph.D. from the Economics Department at Tulane University.

As an applied microeconomist, my interests and fields of specialization span health economics, crime economics, child and family economics, development economics, and environmental economics.

My research centers primarily on the study of the effects that information disclosure, high-profile events and a changing environment have on individual behaviors.

My ongoing projects focus on the effect of increased access to sports in youth on 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.
