Md Mohsan Khudri, PhD Candidate, Department of Economics
I am currently a doctoral candidate and graduate assistant in the Department of Economics at the University of Memphis. My primary research areas are health economics, health policy, development economics, and labor economics. More specifically, I study the economics of risky health behaviors, how health capital investments in infants and toddlers, and welfare enrollment affect outcomes in childhood, adolescence, and later life stages. Additionally, I examine the socioeconomic inequalities, the rural-urban and racial disparities in health outcomes, and healthcare access. I was also drawn into the stock market and business research due to working in a business school for about six and a half years, pondering over stock market movements and shocks, consumer behavior, service quality, and organizational branding. I have authored publications in prominent peer-refereed journals. Additionally, I presented my research at the American Economic Association and Southern Economic Association annual meetings. One of my research papers has been scheduled for presentation at the 2023 American Society of Health Economists and Midwest Economics Association conferences.
