I am a Ph.D. candidate in economics and environmental science at UC Santa Barbara, and a 2022-2023 Dissertation Fellow at the University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation. I am on the 2022-2023 job market.

I broadly study the efficiency, effectiveness, and equity impacts of environmental policies for global and local air pollutants. My job market paper develops an empirical framework for estimating the allocative efficiency changes of environmental markets, and applies it to landmark U.S. air pollution cap-and-trade markets.

Other ongoing projects examine the effectiveness of carbon tariffs in reducing carbon leakage, and the air pollution and health effects of the energy transition.

I formerly worked as a researcher for think-tanks and University-based policy research institutes in Canada. I thrive to generate rigorous yet policy-relevant research. My work has been cited by the Bank of Canada, Environment and Climate Change Canada, in the Supreme Court of Canada, the California EPA, and the OECD.
