PERSONAL AREAS OF INTEREST
Prior to joining Chatham University, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Environmental and Natural Resource Economics at University of Rhode Island. I previously also worked as a postdoctoral RA at the Eviction Lab in Princeton University. I finished my PhD from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2019. I have a broad interest in environmental and natural resource economics, with a concentration on the role of land policies in reshaping the path of economic development. My interests overlap with development economics, economic history and institutional economics.
