Rebecca Myerson's research centers on how
interventions and policy changes affect incidence, diagnosis, and
treatment of non-communicable disease. She has a particular
interest in how different patients self-select into health care
and health insurance in different policy contexts and how this can shape the
observed impacts of policy.
Additional projects focus on state-level variations in
ACA implementation, changes in cardiovascular disease incidence
after trans fat bans, and migration responses to changes in policy.
Rebecca holds a doctorate in public policy from the
University of Chicago with a concentration in applied econometrics, as well as
a MPH from the University of Washington and a bachelors in psychology from
Harvard. Prior to graduate school, Rebecca worked at the Institute for Health
Metrics and Evaluation and conducted research in China as a Fulbright
Her research has been featured in outlets such as the New York Times, Washington Post, and NBC Nightly News.
