Jeremy Barofsky MA, ScD is the Associate Research Director at ideas42. My research interests lie at the intersection between poverty and health.

Previously, I’ve been a non-resident associate at Tulane University’s Commitment to Equity Institute and the Okun-Model Fellow in Economic Studies and a Non-resident Fellow in Governance Studies 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 T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Global Health and Population (Economics Concentration) and an MA in economics from Boston University.

My research has been published in journals such as the Journal of Health Economics, The Lancet, and Health Affairs and has been featured by news organizations such as the New York Times, Scientific American, and The Hill. In addition, my research was cited by the Biden administration’s updated Public Charge Regulation.

At ideas42, I have designed and implemented multiple formative, iterative, and rapid evaluations, mixed methods research projects, and randomized control trials with city, state, and federal government entities.
