Elena Andreyeva is a postdoctoral researcher at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics and the Injury Science Center at the Perelman School of Medicine. Her research interests are motivated by policy-driven questions in the field of applied microeconomics with an emphasis on health economics and urban and regional economics. She focuses on how alterations in public policies affect the level of, or access to, public amenities, and how outcomes vary across space. Her current research investigates how spatial variation in the likelihood of attending a charter school affects residential property values. She also studies whether Australian federal gun regulation affected firearm mortality rates among population.
Elena was awarded a PhD in Economics by Georgia State University’s Andrew Young School of Policy Studies in summer of 2016.
