Gwyn Pauley, PhD
is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison beginning September 2017. Prior to moving to Madison, Gwyn was a Schaeffer-Amgen Postdoctoral Fellow at the Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics at the University of Southern California. She finished her PhD in Economics at Johns Hopkins University in 2015. Before entering her PhD program, she received her B.S. in Mathematics from the University of South Carolina.
Her research focuses on the intersection of health and labor economics. Specifically, she has studied what happens to individuals later in life when they are given access to health insurance during childhood. Additionally, she has worked on a project that shows the impact of an HIV treatment breakthrough (HAART) on domestic violence and illicit drug use among low-income women infected with HIV. While a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Southern California, Gwyn worked on the Future American Model (FAM), a microsimulation model used to forecast health and economic outcomes for young-adults in the United States.
