I am an economist working in the areas of environmental economics, trade, and political economy. Most of my research relates the actions of firms to the environment, often in the context of environmental and climate policy. My work has appeared in outlets such as the Review of Economics and Statistics and the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy

My research has received several awards, including the Canadian Economics Association's 2022 Purvis Prize for a highly significant work in Canadian economic policy (for my paper "Environmental Regulations and the Cleanup of Manufacturing: Plant-Level Evidence" with Jevan Cherniwchan) and the Ivey Business School's Early Career Impact Award.

I have been an assistant professor of Business, Economics, and Public Policy at the Ivey Business School at Western University since 2018. I completed a PhD in Economics at the University of British Columbia in 2018.
