My name is Sebastian Tello-Trillo, I am an Assistant Professor of Public Policy and Economics at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy at the University of Virginia and a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). My fields of specialization are Health Economics and Applied Microeconomics. I research on topics related to health insurance, mental health, Medicaid, health behaviors, and HIV.

With Alex Hollingsworth, I am the co-host of the podcast “The Hidden Curriculum“, a podcast on topics of productivity in the economics profession. I also gladly help out with the organization EconThaki, an organization that’s helping decrease the barriers of the path for PhD in Econ by providing information and classes.
