I am currently an Assistant Professor of Economics at Virginia Military Institute. I completed a PhD at the University of Connecticut in 2019 and an MBA at Old Dominion University in 2013.
My fields of research are labor economics, health economics, and the economics of aging.
My current research has two main areas of focus:
- How retirees can maximize their consumption in retirement, specifically understanding how they could and why they do not use their housing equity for that purpose
- How the health of men and women differ from different types of environmental and physical stimuli
