Upcoming Conferences

I am presenting findings from a recreational cannabis law paper with co-authors Shooshan Danagoulian, Monica Deza, and Timothy Hodge at the Midwest Economics Association in Chicago, IL in March 22nd and the Western Economic Association International in Seattle, WA in June (date TBD).  The paper is coming along nicely with some exciting results that we cannot wait to share.

Applied Research Publication

Paper recently published by Health Economics in its September 2022 issue.  This paper studies the impacts of a pandemic on preventative dental care.  This is a co-authored paper with Dr. Shooshan Danagoulian & was part of my recent research assignment at Wayne State University.  The paper details the impact of visits to dentists using SafeGraph Patterns data & types of care being offset or avoided using Medicaid data for the state of Michigan.
