I am a PhD candidate in Health Services Research and Health Policy at Emory University. My research interests lie in Medicaid policies, mental health, alternative payment models, health disparities, and access to care among underserved populations. My dissertation work evaluates the impacts of Medicaid Managed Care on access to specialty care among children and non-elderly adults with a special focus on enrollees with complex health care needs. Currently, I am a research assistant at the Southeast Mental Health Technology Transfer Center, working on developing resources to inform stakeholders about the role of Medicaid in financing school mental health services.
Prior to my study at Emory, I received my Master of Health Services Administration degree from The University of Michigan School of Public Health and my bachelor's degree in Public Health from National Taiwan University.
