Greetings! I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the SPIRES lab at Yale University's School of the Environment. My research interests lie at the intersection of environmental change and livelihoods. I am particularly excited about applications of remote sensing and its integration with causal inference. 

Prior to Yale, I completed my Ph.D. at UCSB's Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, where I worked as a researcher for emLab on projects funded by CGIAR's Standing Panel on Impact Assessment and the Arnhold Family Foundation. 

In Fall 2024, I will join the University of Utah as an Assistant Professor (split between Economics and Environmental & Sustainability Studies).

When not thinking about environmental economics, I can be found casting a fly to a hungry trout or hiking on one of the local trails.
