My research interests lie broadly at the intersection of human and natural systems. Specifically, I am interested in the dynamic feedbacks between human behavior and biophysical processes, and their implications for public policy. I do theoretical and empirical research on a wide range of environmental and public health topics. I use game theory and dynamic optimization methods to understand the theoretical foundations of problems and generate testable hypotheses. I use both econometric and simulation-based methods to test hypotheses and quantify policy impacts.
