Welcome to my website. I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management and Department of Economics at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). My research interests lie in environmental economics and tend to use a combination of microeconomic theory, quasi-experimental econometric methods, and remotely sensed data. Current projects involve payments for native reforestation in Chile and econometric methodology using satellite data. I am a member the Conservation Economics Lab and UCSB's emLab.

Prior to joining Bren, I guided whitewater rafting trips in Juneau, Alaska. When not thinking about environmental economics, I can be found hiking on one of the local trails or casting a fly to a hungry trout.
