Welcome! My name is Katherine (Katie) Yewell. I completed my Ph.D. in Economics at Vanderbilt University in August 2020 and am an Assistant Professor in the Health Management and Systems Sciences Department at the University of Louisville School of Public Health and Information Services.
My fields of specialization are health economics and applied microeconomics. My research analyzes the effects of public policies on maternal and child health outcomes and household decision-making, as well as the effects of changes in hospital markets on quality of care. I also have extensive experience teaching and find it rewarding to motivate and engage students in their own learning.
