About Me

I am Assistant Professor of Public Policy and Economics at the School of Public Affairs, Arizona State University. I am also affiliated with the ASU School of Sustainability as a Senior Sustainability Scientist, and a faculty affiliate of the Center for Environmental Economics and Sustainability at the ASU W.P. Carey School of Business.

At ASU, I teach economics and public policy to undergraduate and graduate students. I am a recipient of the 2016-17 Distinguished Teaching Award.

My areas of expertise are environmental and natural resource economics, environmental policy and management, political economy, governance, applied econometrics.

Outlets for my work have included Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists, Journal of Environmental Management, Environmental Science & Policy, Governance, Regulation & Governance, and International Interactions. Funders for my work include the National Research Council, National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation. Prior to joining ASU, I was a National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow at NOAA. Before this, I served as a Senior Analyst in Economic Research at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. I received a Ph.D. in Public Policy & Management at the University of Washington. I earned my MSc in Economics from University College London. I received my BA in Economics with a minor in Environmental Economics and Policy from UC Berkeley.

When not doing research or teaching, I enjoy exploring both the city and the outdoors with my husband Joseph Huang, drinking artisan coffee, browsing bookstores, and cooking gourmet cuisines from around the world.
