Research

I am an empirical researcher who uses microeconomic theory to form my research questions and hypotheses. My research focuses on the intersection of environment and development economics and topically spans water and sanitation, water supply, energy access, climate change mitigation and adaptation, health, poverty, gender, and human capital development.  My main empirical methods are experimental and quasi-experimental techniques, non-market valuation methods, and econometric analysis. I have conducted fieldwork in Cambodia, Jordan, and India.
