I am a PhD candidate in Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics at The Ohio State University. My primary research lies at the intersection of Economics of Health, Food, and Consumer Behavior. My job market paper explores how non-healthcare consumption behaviors are influenced by public health insurance expansions. Professor Brian Roe is my faculty advisor and Professors Allen Klaiber, Zoe Plakias, and Wuyang Hu are part of my Guidance Committee. I received a B.S. (Agricultural Technology and Management) from University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka and an M.S. (Agricultural and Applied Economics) from University of Wyoming.
