I am an Assistant Professor at the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management at UC Santa Barbara. I am an affiliate of the Climate Impact Lab, a research associate at the Environmental Markets Lab, an affiliate of the Center for Effective Global Action, and a faculty research fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research.
I joined Bren after a postdoc at the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago. I completed my PhD in Agricultural & Resource Economics at UC Berkeley, where I was an EPA STAR Fellow and a Doctoral Fellow in the Global Policy Lab at the Goldman School of Public Policy.
I am an environmental and resource economist, focusing on questions at the intersection of environmental change and economic development.
