I am a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University. Following the postdoc, I will join the Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics at Washington and Lee University as an Assistant Professor of Economics.  

I recently completed my Ph.D. at Columbia University, where I was a fellow at the Center for Development Economics and Policy. 

As an environmental and energy economist, I study the social costs and distributional impacts of large-scale infrastructure projects, with a particular focus on developing countries. More fundamentally, I am interested in tackling issues of environmental and social justice, especially as they relate to the disparities in employment, education, and health of the disadvantaged and marginalized.
