Abigail Barker is the faculty lead for data and methods at the Center for Health Economics and Policy at the Institute for Public Health.

Her own research focuses on econometric modeling and microsimulations on topics relating to health insurance markets, Medicaid, and health reform. Her current work for the Rural Policy Research Institute focuses on understanding how markets can be successfully integrated into the health care sector, using the Affordable Care Act and Health Insurance Marketplaces data as well as Medicare Advantage data to inform rural health policy.
