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 aims to understand the impacts of forest-based climate solutions and the human communities residing within targeted ecosystems. I often use econometric methods of causal inference and remotely sensed data to achieve these goals. My current projects involve payments for native reforestation in Chile and econometric methodology using satellite data. I am a member of UCSB's emLab and Conservation Economics Lab. I am on the 2022/2023 job market.

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.
