Biography

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania and Associate Fellow at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. My research interests include access to health care in rural communities and the intersection of aging and health policy. My dissertation evaluated the impact of a federal program for family caregivers of post-9/11 Veterans on caregiver health and employment outcomes. My recent research also includes examining access to care after rural hospital closures.
