Stern Faculty Spotlight: Claudia Perlich

“As you’re approaching your career, don’t spend too much time planning because life happens in unexpected ways.

This month’s Stern Faculty Spotlight features Dr. Michael Dickstein, Assistant Professor of Economics. He teaches Healthcare Markets to MBAs, specializes in healthcare economics, and more recently has focused his research on the design of health insurance marketplaces created under the Affordable Care Act.
