I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at the Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University. My research is in health economics and behavioral economics. My research spans three main topic areas. The first is agency problems in healthcare, with a focus on physician prescribing decisions. Second, I am interested in how consumers learn from new information and from social norms, with a focus on health-related decisions. In my third research area, I study how insights from behavioral economics can help improve health behavior, using field experiments.
