Independent research for global prosperity

Her ongoing research is on the role of health human capital (nutrition, pain management, adequate sleep) in economic productivity, cognitive function, and decision-making; profit-maximization among micro-entrepreneurs; dynamic complementarities in education; and the role of financial and social incentives in promoting healthy behaviors, to name a few.

Heather completed a PhD in business economics, an MS in global health and population, and an AB magna cum laude at Harvard University.
