Welcome to the Hill Lab
Dr. Elaine Hill's primary research interests are in health economics and environmental economics. In particular, her research focuses on the intersection between health, health policy, the environment and human capital formation, with an emphasis on the effect of environmental exposures on health. Her most recent research utilizes quasi-experimental methods to study the impacts of shale gas development on human health in the US. She is also involved in early origins research, linking in utero environment to later life health and educational attainment. Dr. Hill serves to support research projects at the University of Rochester employing "big data", structural modeling and cost-effectiveness assessment.
