Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Maclean’s research uses health and labor economic theory to empirically explore the health effects of employment and public policies. She is also interested in the labor market and socioeconomic consequences of poor health and health behaviors. Her current work focuses on the persistent health and health behavior consequences of economic conditions at school-leaving, implications of rising obesity for recruitment in the U.S. military, understanding state tobacco control policies and their impact on consumer behavior, and the effect of Axis II personality disorders on health behaviors.
