    BioAlice Milivinti is Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Stanford University School of Medicine at Center for Population Health Sciences. Her primary interest is to bring economic thinking and econometric techniques to answer Public Health questions. Her primary research interest is on the causal impact of economic and fiscal policies on life-cycle health outcomes. She works with Dr. Rehkopf D. on trying to uncover the causal impact of the New Deal programs and the Earned Income Tax Credit. She is co-PI with Dr. Athey S. on a Spectrum PHS Pilot Grant, which aims to develop a surrogate health index of short-term indicators to evaluate the impact of social policies on longer-term health outcomes. She is also a Fellow of Dr. Carstensen L. New Map of Life Project at the Stanford Center on Longevity, where she investigates the disruptive potential of longer lives on work. Her secondary research interest is on environmental epidemiology. She is a co-investigator of the Spectrum PHS Pilot Grant with Dr. Benini G. and Dr. Brant A. for studying the health effects of upstream methane emission (flaring and venting) from the oil and gas sector.
