Laura Nettuno

I am a fifth-year PhD student in the Department of Economics at Vanderbilt University.

I am an applied microeconomist with interests in heath and labor economics. I use quasi-experimental approaches to study policy-relevant questions. My research studies the causal effect of policies and programs on marginalized and vulnerable populations in both the U.S. and in developing countries. 

I am a trainee in the VU LGBTQ+ Policy Lab and the VU Center for Research on Inequality and Health.
