Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Missouri
I am an applied microeconomist working on topics related to health and education. Some of the research topics I am currently working on include the measurement of student poverty and disadvantage in the US, the determinants of Advanced Placement (AP) course and exam-taking behavior, and the coverage impacts of the ACA in the Trump era.
Before starting my current job as a postdoctoral fellow in the Economics Department at University of Missouri, I finished my PhD in Economics from Georgia State University in 2020 where I also worked as a graduate research assistant for the Georgia Policy Labs (GPL), a collaboration between Georgia State University and a number of government agencies and school districts to promote evidence-based policy development. Prior to the PhD program, I worked for Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) as a research associate on several academic research projects. Before that, I received a Master's and an undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.
