Dr. Jing Li is a health economist with research interests in the economic, social and behavioral factors affecting individual decision-making in health and healthcare, for both providers and patients, and the impact of policies that leverage these factors to improve patient outcomes and healthcare market efficiency. Methodologically, she is interested in innovatively applying advanced experimental and econometric methods to addressing understudied questions in health economics and policy. Dr. Li’s current projects study experimentally measured social preferences (altruism) of physicians and their relationship with patient outcomes, healthcare and financial decision-making for older adults with cognitive impairments including Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and conflicts of interest in physician drug prescribing.
