Health Equity/Research Interest
An economist by training, my research focuses on the industrial organization of health care, with special attention to federal regulation of health insurance markets. My research informs the design of publicly-subsidized health insurance markets such as the Affordable Care Act marketplaces. I am particularly interested in the success of federal regulations, such as reinsurance and risk adjustment, in neutralizing adverse selection in these markets. In other research, I have studied how the financial relationships between physicians and drug firms affect prescribing behavior, and the success of state policies that aim to interdict prescription opioid abuse.
Interested in fostering connections between Weill Cornell and the Ithaca campus.
