Gopi Shah Goda

Stanford University

Faculty Fellow year

2024 - Stanford University

Gopi Shah Goda conducts research that informs how policy can best serve aging populations. She studies the sustainability of public programs serving the elderly, how individuals make healthcare, saving and retirement decisions as they age, and the broader implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on health, labor supply and entitlement programs. As a faculty fellow in 2023-24, Gopi will embark on research that advances understanding of the ways the tax code subsidizes health care costs, and the interplay between tax policy and insurance coverage.  

Gopi is a senior fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) at Stanford University and a faculty research fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research.  From July 2021 to July 2022, Gopi served as a senior economist at the White House Council of Economic Advisers.  Prior to joining SIEPR in 2009, Gopi was a Robert Wood Johnson Scholar in Health Policy Research at Harvard University.  She earned her PhD in economics from Stanford University in 2007 and her BS in mathematics and actuarial science from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln in 2000.
