Welcome to My Website!

I currently work as a Research Assistant working with Dr. Shooshan Dangoulian on multiple health projects and prior part-time Lecturer for Eastern Michigan University, Oakland University, & Oakland Community College while I finish my dissertation at Wayne State University.  My areas of concentration are in healthcare economics and industrial organization.  I plan to defend in the spring of 2024.  I recently accepted a post-doctoral research position with the NBER.

My dissertation examines the placement & competitive mix of urgent care centers amongst hospitals, physicians, & specialists.  Current research interests center around spatial modeling and multi-period treatment effects of difference-in-difference modeling in quasi-experimental designs.  I enjoy teaching microeconomics, macroeconomics, healthcare economics, statistics, game theory, and business economics.  I wish to incorporate law and economics, anti-trust, and econometrics into my teaching schedule.

Hobbies of mine include woodworking, social dancing, photography, drumming, and sprint cycling.

Please take a minute to look around and feel free to contact me.  I am always open for new and creative collaborations.
