    Christina's research interests span various subjects in American politics. She studies the effect of American state and federal institutions on policy outcomes, legislative and executive political behavior, and the impact of non-governmental actors on labor and health policy outcomes. Her current research project examines governors' decisions to support the Medicaid expansion and offers a definition of distributive politics that stems from the geography of realized benefits, as opposed to intended benefits. Before coming to the University of Michigan, Christina was a research associate and project manager at the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research and led the development of a microsimulation model to study the impact of the ACA on California insurance markets.
