I am an Associate Fellow of the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania.

My main areas of interest include pharmaceutical prices and innovation, healthcare advertising, healthcare competition, and surprise medical billing.

Before joining Penn, I received my bachelor's degree in Economics and Statistics at Barnard College.
