Research Economist, Mathematica
I am an applied microeconomist with research interests at the intersection of environmental and development economics. I study how lack of access to modern energy services affects environmental and socioeconomic outcomes in low- and middle-income countries. I am also interested in what drives the effectiveness of environmental and development interventions in remote, rural settings.
I am currently a Research Economist in the International Unit at Mathematica. Prior to joining Mathematica, I was an Atkinson Postdoctoral Fellow at the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University. I received my PhD in Environmental Economics from Duke University.
