My research focuses on the intersection of environment and development economics, and examines the contributors to and impacts of environmental-related health issues. Specifically, I study why households often show low demand for seemingly cost-effective technologies, what behaviors households use to cope with poor environmental quality, and how environmental health related illnesses affect long-run human capital development. My research to-date primarily focuses on water and sanitation issues, but also explores topics such as water supply, energy access, climate change mitigation and adaptation, poverty, and gender.
