Three Essays on Health Economics and Policy
thesisposted on 01.08.2019 by Hansoo Ko
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
My research focuses on a variety of topics on individual behavioral changes to external changes. By exploring how individual responses to policy interventions and environmental shocks, I aim to provide policy implications on how to promote health behavior and how to mitigate negative health impacts at an individual level. How individual responses to external shocks such as policy changes and environmental shocks has been less studied in the health economics and health policy literature. My research questions are important as a matter of informing implications for policy especially when the impacts of policy changes or environmental shocks on health are unclear.
