Research Interests

How do weather and natural disasters interact with the economy, in both the short and long run? While exploring this core question, my research places particular emphasis on understanding the mediating forces of market responses, individual behaviors, and political economy. I derive novel empirical insights into these mechanisms using quasi-experimental methods and comprehensive datasets built from administrative records.
