  • Professor of The Dartmouth Institute

  • Adjunct Professor in Economics

My expertise is in health economics and policy. My research focuses on nonmedical determinants of health care use, health, and employment.  This work asks, “How do non-clinical factors like education, health insurance coverage, Medicare and Medicaid payment policy, or state and federal regulations shape health care use, health, and economic outcomes?”
