I am an environmental economist researching urban policy issues, such as lead poisoning. My secondary field is health economics.

Conserving resources and reducing pollution are among the most pressing challenges facing society.
Designing programs to achieve these goals requires an understanding of 1) pollution damages and 2) individuals’ and firms’ behavior.
How do people value reductions in their exposure risk to harmful pollutants?
What drives compliance with environmental regulations?
I investigate these questions using large administrative datasets and experimental and quasi-experimental methods.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Chicago Energy and Environment Lab.

I will be available for interviews in the Fall and Winter 2019-2020 at APPAM in Philadelphia, EEA meeting in Rotterdam, and AEA-ASSA meeting in San Diego.
