About me

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of California, Berkeley and a graduate student researcher at the Energy Institute at Haas. In September 2019, I will join the University of Massachusetts Amherst as an Assistant Professor of Resource Economics.

I study energy and environment economics and industrial organization. My recent research examines market power in wholesale electricity markets, the role of electricity in agricultural groundwater extraction, and the design of carbon markets and other environmental policies. I also develop applied econometric methods for use in my empirical work, including tools for designing field experiments using panel data.
