I am a PhD student in Economics and Environmental Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara. My research focuses on the economics of land use, wildfire, and housing. Current projects assess the impact of wildfire on outdoor recreation, the effects of wildfire insurance on housing development, and estimation of welfare change from affordable housing policy.
I received a BA in Economics from the University of Puget Sound in 2013. I subsequently worked as a research assistant and later as an energy economics consultant. Between academic and professional work I lived in Le Havre, France, where I taught English to students aged 13 to 15. Personal interests include guitar, French, punk, new wave, art, and basketball.
