I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at Vanderbilt University and a Faculty Research Fellow at the NBER. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Brown University. I work primarily in the areas of health economics, environmental economics, and applied microeconomics.
My research focuses on the impact of environmental toxins on child and infant heath and the role of environmental policy and regulation. My recent research explores the impact of environmental regulations, such as drinking water regulation, underground storage tank regulation and gasoline content regulation, on infant and child health.
