Research

My research interests include household financial well-being, consumer economics, and health economics. In my recent research projects I investigated the impact of college financial aid policy on household portfolio composition, the role of adverse health events on household finances, the impact of intra-household distribution of bargaining power on income protection through life insurance, various aspects of financial literacy and its role on economic behavior, as well as health effects of economic recessions.
