Behavioral economics provides a framework to understand the influence of various costs, including the time, money, and effort required to obtain an outcome, on a wide range of behaviors that impact health and mortality. My research seeks to develop and refine practical, low-cost interventions that target behavioral economic mechanisms in order to improve these health behaviors, including diet, physical activity, medication adherence, tobacco use, and adoption of clinical preventive services.
