Aditi Sen received her PhD in health economics from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. Beginning in 2016, she will be an assistant professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health after spending the 2015-2016 academic year in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation at the Department of Health and Human Services.

Broadly, she aims to understand how health care providers respond to changes in policy and to organizational and financial incentives, including applying concepts from behavioral economics to provider payment. In turn, she is interested in implications for how we can make health policies more effective.

She holds an undergraduate degree from Yale University and masters in applied economics from Johns Hopkins.
