Peter is a PhD student in Health Policy at Harvard University. In pursuing health services research, Peter's interests currently focus on better understanding health care delivery system issues. Broadly, these issues generate important questions regarding the impact of provider and institutional decision-making on health care quality and costs. Specifically, these issues focus on topics such as Accountable Care Organizations (ACO), the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), and other important policy developments within the past decade. Furthermore, Peter aims to explore these research questions in the context of modern health care systems, new payment models, and big data. Peter has received a BSPH from the Gillings School of Global Public Health at UNC Chapel Hill and an MSPH from the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University.
