I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics at Washington and Lee University. Prior to joining W&L, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Princeton University. 

I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University and my B.A. from U.C. Berkeley. I am a fellow at the Center for Development Economics and Policy and a research affiliate at the Earth Institute's Research Program on Sustainability Policy and Management at Columbia University. 

My research interests are at the intersection of environmental and development economics. I use data and methods from economics, data science, and climate science to understand the impact of environmental change on economic development and human welfare.
