Postdoctoral Research Fellow | UCLA

I'm a financial and environmental economist at the University of California Los Angeles Luskin Center for Innovation. I am interested in how economic agents respond to changing environments and my current focus is on the potential effects of Climate Change on Firms and Financial Markets as well as the role of Public Policy and Private Adaptation Investments in this context.

I hold a Ph.D. in Finance from Maastricht University and visited Toulouse School of Economics, the University of Toronto, and 427 Climate Solutions during the program. I have taught graduate and undergraduate courses in finance and business ethics and have held MBA and MPP lectures on climate finance and environmental economics.

My dissertation was awarded with grants by the French Social Investment Forum and Principles for Responsible Investment in 2017 and 2020. My joint work with Jisung Park and Patrick Behrer was recently covered by the New York Times, LA Times, and the Guardian.
