About me:

I am a natural resource economist. Since 2017, I have been an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at Mount Holyoke College. My research focuses on natural resource management, poverty, and the intersection between these two topics. To carry out this work, I combine theory and empirical techniques from economics, ecology, and natural history. I teach courses on environmental and natural resource economics and econometrics.
