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 scholar. Her research has been featured in outlets such as the New York Times, Washington Post, and NBC Nightly News.
