Clinical Assistant Professor of Economics (Research), Kennesaw State University
I am an applied microeconomist working on topics related to education and health. Some of the research topics I am currently working on include the measurement of student poverty and disadvantage in the K-12 space, the determinants of Advanced Placement (AP) course and exam-taking behavior, and the effects of the Affordable Care Act and its various components on insurance coverage and coverage disparity.
Before starting my current job as a research-intensive Clinical Assistant Professor at KSU, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Economics Department at the University of Missouri and worked on projects related to US K-12 policy using Missouri's education microdata. Prior to that, I finished my PhD in Economics from Georgia State University where I was 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. Before graduate school, I was a research associate at Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA).
