PhD (Economics), Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA 2018
Dustin's research identifies and tests implementable policies, both on the supply and demand sides as well as the market institutions that shape how they meet, that contain health care costs, and maximize health outcomes. He investigates how behavioral economic principles such as framing, influence stakeholders perceptions of programs and policy, and how those perceptions impact success. He utilizes economic experiments, observational methods, and meta-analysis to inform policy and advance the sciences of economics and health policy, while ensuring the validity and replicability of scientific findings.
