Welcome to my website!
I am a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Health Economics Wellbeing and Society, and the National Centre for Health Workforce Studies at the Australian National University. Previously I worked as a Senior Lecturer at Deakin University and a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne. From 2017 to 2021 I am an Australian Research Council (ARC) awarded Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) fellow. I obtained my PhD in economics from McMaster University in Canada in 2011.
My research fields of interest are health economics, economics of education, family economics, and development economics. My areas of research include social economic determinants of health and human capital, incentives in the health care markets and performance of health care providers, and physician behaviours.
I am currently working on projects investigating the causal effect of parental education on offspring health, cognitive and non-cognitive abilities, the effects of early-life shocks and early childhood investments on later-life outcomes, and modelling individuals's preferences for health care and policies using Discrete Choice Experiments.
January 2022- I am now a Senior Research Fellow in the Research School of Population Health at the Australian National University.
