Megan F. Hyland


Ph.D. Candidate in Public Policy

Jeb E. Brooks School of Public Policy, Cornell University

I am a sixth-year Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy at Cornell University with interests in health economics and health policy. In June 2024, I will join the Medicare Drug Rebate and Negotiations Group within the Center for Medicare as an Economist. 

My research examines how federal and state policies affect the health outcomes and healthcare experiences of vulnerable groups, particularly older adults.

Prior to graduate school, I was a health policy research consultant with the Lewin Group. I graduated from Providence College with a B.A. in Business Economics, and I spent my junior year abroad at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
