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 a M.Sc. from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. My research has been published in outlets such as Health Affairs, Medical Care, and Psychiatric Services.
I am an incoming NIMH T32 postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Mental Health (CMH), Department of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. I look forward to expanding my research to include settings outside inpatient psychiatry.
