Scott is a health and labor economist who came to UB after working as an Assistant Professor at Clemson University. His research topics have included the far reach of health insurance in our lives, the role of financial incentives in physicians’ medical care decisions, and interaction effects of government policies. Within these topics, Medicaid expansions have been a frequent subject of study.
In the classroom, Scott teaches Health Economics and Econometrics courses here at UB. His goal is to make his classes interactive so that students feel more engaged, and he aspires to draw all his graphs perfectly, every time.
