PhD Candidate in Health Policy (G2, Economics)

 

Joseph graduated from Case Western Reserve University in 2019 with majors in Chemical Biology,
Cognitive Science, and Economics. He then received his MPH from Case Western in 2020, during
which his research focused on the effects of abortion policy restrictions on maternal health outcomes.
He was also involved with the NEO-CASE project, a cancer disparities resource which combined
Ohio cancer registry data with other sources, such as survey, facility location, and Census data. More
recently, Joseph has been studying how value-based care innovations have changed the Medicare
Advantage market by combining plan-level enrollment and benefits data with the entrance of new
value-based care organizations in different regions across the country. His research interests include
supply-side cost sharing innovations in managed care and non-physician provider labor economics.
