About

I am an NIMH T32 postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Mental Health (CMH), Department of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. I research quality and accountability of health care, and have been particularly interested in the setting of inpatient psychiatry. I recently defended my Ph.D. in social policy with a concentration in behavioral health (June 2020) at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management. For my dissertation, I examined the effect of a national public reporting program on safety indicators in inpatient psychiatry facilities. During my Ph.D., I was supported by a T32 fellowship from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and was a Harvard Kennedy School Rappaport Doctoral Public Policy Fellow. I received an M.Sc. from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. My research has been published in outlets such as Health AffairsMedical Care, Psychiatric Services, Medical Care Research and Review.
