My research agenda focuses on the intersection of health economics, labor economics, and economic history. In particular, I am motivated to understand how nutrition, health status, human capital, and labor productivity have interacted with one another over the long run of modern economic development. This entails drawing on core concepts in labor and health economics, as well as medical research and economic and social history. It also entails careful attention to issues of causal inference when trying to isolate specific relationships of interest.
