PhD Candidate in Health Policy (G5, Economics)


Travis graduated with bachelor's degrees in management and public health from Marshall University in 2016 and an MPH in health management and policy from University of Michigan in 2018. Travis’s research focuses on the economics of markets for addictive substances and on social and economic determinants of health. Current projects explore the effects of controlled substances enforcement on local prescription opioid supply and opioid overdose death rates, what social and economic factors explain the more than thirty-year trend of increasing opioid overdose deaths in the U.S., and the effects of economic shocks on mortality. His work in the program has been supported by the AHRQ and NIMH T-32 Training Grants and the NBER Pre-doctoral fellowship in Aging and Health.
