        I am a PhD. candidate in Health Policy with a concentration in Economics
        at the University of Michigan. My dissertation is about heterogeneous
        effects of health insurance tax subsidies on self-employment for people
        with pre-existing conditions. My other research interests include the
        effect of cancer screenings on mortality and the effect of health
        insurance reform on insurance markets. I have a B.A. in Biology from
        Macalester College and an M.P.H. from the University of Michigan. I was
        a Staff Economist at the Council of Economic Advisers from 2010-2011.
