Hello and Welcome!

I am a research associate in the Eudaimonia Institute at Wake Forest University. My research centers on the environmental domain of subjective measure of well-being (SWB). As an Applied Economist, I also shed light on unresolved puzzles in the economics of happiness; I perform research on different sub-components of SWB (i.e., life evaluation, affect, and eudaimonia) using quantitative research methods and demonstrate how different dimensions of SWB and their integration with various conventional measures of economic progress serve to inform policy.

Specializing in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics, the second pillar of my research focuses on climate adaptation and community resilience in the face of natural disasters including welfare change analysis of risk communication and protective measures.

Please take a look at my CV and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments.
