Greetings! I am a Postdoctoral Associate in the SPIRES lab at Yale School of the Environment. In Fall 2024, I will join the University of Utah as an Assistant Professor (joint in Economics and Environmental & Sustainability Studies).
My research interests lie in the economics of environmental conservation, the intersection of environment and development, and the integration of satellite data with causal inference.
I completed my Ph.D. at UCSB's Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, where I was a member of the Conservation Economics Lab and worked as a researcher for the Environmental Markets Lab (emLab) on projects funded by CGIAR's Standing Panel on Impact Assessment and the Arnhold Family Foundation.
Prior to grad school, 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.
