I am an Economist at University of Southern California's Center for Economic and Social Research (CESR). I received my PhD in Economics from Columbia University. I was a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics and a RCMAR Scholar for the Minority Aging Health Economics Research Center at USC.
My research interests have to do with inequality, health, gender, labor economics, and household finance.
In Spring 2017 I am teaching Health Economics at USC
