My research studies the relationship between organizational and managerial strategies and performance outcomes in the health care sector. In particular, I use quantitative methods to study how the strategic decisions of corporations to merge, acquire, or partner with other organizations can change managerial processes in ways that impact both financial and clinical performance. A secondary research strand studies how health care organizations adapt their service delivery and prices following changes in state and federal legislation.
I earned my PhD in Managerial Science and Applied Economics from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and my BA (with honors) in Economics and Mathematics from Swarthmore College. Prior to Wharton, I worked as an analyst for the Quantitative Economics and Statistics group of Ernst and Young in Washington, DC.
