Welcome to my personal webpage!
I am a PhD Candidate and the Howard-Karsten Memorial Fellow at the Department of Economics, University of Utah. My research advisor is Dr. Norman Waitzman. 

My Dissertation topic is on the effects of minimum wage laws on health outcomes and behaviors. My general research interests include the health impacts of labor market regulations, US health disparities, cost-effectiveness analysis, the US healthcare system, and health policy evaluation.

I have taught a variety of courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, including elementary microeconomics, current economic problems, mathematics for economists, and health economics for both the department of Economics, and the department of Health Administration. I have also taught at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah.

In addition to teaching, I work for the Health Economics Core in the Population Health Research Foundation of the School of Medicine where I am currently involved in collaborative work with the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, General Surgery, the Hunstman Cancer Institute, The Center for Global Surgery, and Intermountain Healthcare Foundry.
