Working Papers

The Effects of Public Health Insurance on Near-Elderly Mortality

Job market paper, with Sam Arenberg

My dissertation, summarized in this job market paper, aims to improve our understanding and existing estimates of the effects of public health insurance on near-elderly mortality. Using restricted Census and NVSS data, I examine the effects of Medicare eligibility at age 65 and ACA Medicaid eligibility on near-elderly mortality.

Research in progress

The Long-Term Effects of Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease

This joint research project with physicians and researchers from Texas Center for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease aims to be the first to link Texas education and labor data (from the Texas Education Research Center) with medical records. Our research will study the social, academic, and economic trajectories of children with pediatric and congenital heart disease.
