Greetings! 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 the economics of environmental conservation, natural climate solutions, and economic development of communities residing within targeted ecosystems. I often use econometric methods of causal inference and remotely sensed data to answer questions in these areas. Some current projects include targeting for social development in payments for reforestation in Chile and econometric methodology using satellite data. I am a member of UCSB's emLab and Conservation Economics Lab.
I will be a Postdoctoral Associate in the SPIRES lab at the Yale School of Environment next year, before beginning as an Assistant Professor at the University of Utah (joint in Economics and Environmental & Sustainability Studies) in Fall 2024.
Prior to my Ph.D., I guided 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.
