My research focuses on understanding how healthcare costs inform the medical decisions of both clinicians and patients. My overall goal is to reduce the cost of advanced imaging, making it more affordable and accessible to patients and families.
I became interested in health economics due to my personal experience as a young adult needing medical care and not having insurance. This experience, along with the sticker shock of medical bills, opened my eyes to the need to understand the economic complexity of the healthcare system. My objective is to make positive changes that enhance the affordability and efficiency of the healthcare system.
I’ve been a researcher for more than six years and began working at Cincinnati Children’s in 2021. My work is published in many well-respected journals including, Pediatric Radiology, Journal of the American College of Radiology and Academic Radiology.
