I am an environmental economics researcher studying climate, and air pollution policies. I am a S.V. Ciriacy-Wantrup Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley, and in Summer 2024 I will be joining the University of Ottawa’s Department of Economics, and the Institute of the Environment as an Assistant Professor.
I study the efficiency, effectiveness, and equity consequences of environmental policies to cut 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 decarbonization pathways in the oil and gas sector.
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.
