Topics in Dynamic Panel Data Analysis, Time-Varying Individual Heterogeneities, and Cross-Sectional Dependence

This research deals with estimation and inference problems for dynamic panel-data models under time-varying individual heterogeneities and cross-sectional dependence (common shocks). An important aspect of these problems is that the individual heterogeneity and the common shocks are correlated with the explanatory variables. This correlation is fundamental for economic variables. Standard procedures such as within-group estimators will lead to inconsistent inferences. This research explores new estimation procedures and related inference problems.

Doctoral Dissertation Research in Economics: Essays on the determinants of healthcare differences in US hospitals

Healthcare differences are pervasive in United States hospitals. This proposal aims to understand why patients with the same underlying health conditions receive different treatments, incur different costs, and experience different outcomes. There are conceivably many factors that affect patient care, but one factor may be the quality of the patient's attending physician, and another factor may be the patient's health insurance category.

CAREER: Health Determinants and Research Design

What determines human health is known only in part. Even where causal pathways have been identified, great uncertainty frequently exists regarding the strength of the relationship. Compelling and precise estimates of these relationships are needed to inform public policies that will improve population health. This project would improve understanding of these relationships, using natural and quasi-experiments.

Diversion and Alternative to Arrest Programs

The foundation is primarily interested in measuring the impact of diversion programs on public safety, fairness, and cost efficiency. Particular outcomes of interest include recidivism (e.g., frequency of re-arrest, additional
charges, additional convictions); the use of criminal justice and/or other public resources (e.g., jail booking,
jail days, court costs, emergency room admissions, failures to appear); and socio-economic indicators (e.g.,
housing, employment, income, and education).
