I am an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at Tulane University. My broad research interests are in Health Economics and Applied Econometrics, where I employ innovative econometric tools to study how public policies affect people’s health and wellbeing. In particular, I work on impact evaluation, measurement error models, the economics of obesity, and food and nutrition programs. I am also interested in techniques for generalizability in health policy using statistical machine learning approaches for causal inference.

​I completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Harvard Medical School after obtaining my Ph.D. in Economics from Georgia State University. I hold an MA in Economics from the University of Akron and a BA in Economics and Statistics from the University of Ghana.
