More Information

Abraham Asfaw is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Economics and the Murphy Institute at Tulane University. He graduated with a Ph.D. degree in Economics from Northern Illinois University in 2017. His research interest lies at the intersection of health, labor, and development economics. His recent works examined the long term and the intergenerational human capital effects of early exposure to adverse health shocks and investments in child health inputs. Currently, he is investigating the health care utilization effects of cost-sharing in prescription drug insurances.

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), The Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
