I am a researcher specializing in health economics, economics of aging, microsimulation methods and applied macroeconomics. I currently serve as the Policy Director at the University of Southern California (USC) Roybal Center for Health Policy Simulation, a Research Professor at the USC Pharmacy School, and an Economist at the USC Leonard D. Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics.
Prior to these appointments, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the USC Schaeffer Center in 2015 and obtained a Ph.D. in economics from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in 2013. My dissertation uses theory and computational methods to study the demand for care and predict policy outcomes in public healthcare systems and in the United States. My current research uses simulation methods to study the health and economic impact of health policy and medical innovation.
