I hold a Master's in Economics and am now a Ph.D. Candidate in Health Services Research. My research interests focused on health policy (especially payment reform) evaluation and health outcomes for people at vulnerable periods of life-course (e.g. infants or elderly). I am a fan of causal inference. I now work as a Research Assistant for Prof. Boudreaux on DelCAN evaluation project.
