Research Interests

My research explores environmental economics, focusing on the interaction between incentives and environmental policies. I am interested in how current environmental policies influence consumers, agencies, and countries, and how these policies can be optimized. My research is both theoretical and empirical, and incorporates methods from microeconomic theory, empirical economics, mechanism design, and game theory. I have been involved with interdisciplinary research, including completing a specialization in interdisciplinary environmental research at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
