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 remote sensing. Current projects involve payments for native reforestation in Chile and econometric methodology using satellite data. Check out some of the other exciting projects currently underway in the Conservation Economics Lab!

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.
