My research interests lie in the areas of applied microeconomics with a particular focus on the role of institutions in addressing resource and environmental issues. In my research, I mainly apply quantitative techniques and particularly micro-econometric methods to estimate causal effects. I collect survey data, conduct economic experiments, and analyze secondary data, grounded in economic theory.
