My current research focuses on the well-being of older households. Recent research topics include the effectiveness of 401(K)s and similar retirement saving plans, whether the elderly are financially prepared for retirement, how households manage their wealth after retirement, and the role of health in the financial security of older households. I currently teach Economics 36, The Theory of Finance.
