About

Michaela3My primary research interests include income inequality, economic development, and population health. My dissertation is a cross-national, quantitative study of how income inequality impacts health across different levels of economic development, at the country-level and the individual-level. My other research is focused on foreign aid allocation and efficacy and how social networks impact health outcomes.

I utilize quantitative methods (including Social Network Analysis) in my research. I do data mining, coding, and analysis using Stata and R. I am also familiar with C++, HTML, Java, and Javascript.
