Jeremy Barofsky MA, ScD is the Vice President of Applied Research and Evaluation at ideas42, a behavioral economics NGO, and a non-resident associate at Tulane University’s Commitment to Equity Institute. Previously, I was the Okun-Model Fellow at the Brookings Institution¬†and a postdoctoral research scholar at the Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics at the University of Southern California. I hold a doctorate from Harvard University’s TH Chan School of Public Health in Global Health and Population (Economics Concentration) and an MA in economics from Boston University.

I’m interested in the intersection between health and poverty and how behavioral economics can improve each.
