Hi there! I am an applied economist with research interests in agricultural and environmental economics. I use experimental economics methods and non-market valuation techniques to quantify the impact of human behavioral changes on natural systems and inform & evaluate agri-environmental policies. I am particularly interested in policy issues related to management of water resources.
Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Agricultural Economics & Policy in Food and Resource Economics Department at the University of Florida. I am also a Fellow with the USDA-funded national Center for Behavioral and Experimental Agri-Environmental Research (CBEAR), co-headquartered at Johns Hopkins University and University of Delaware.
Prior to joining the faculty of the Food and Resource Economics Department at UF, I was a Postdocotral Research Fellow in the Department of Applied Economics & Statistics and the Center for Experimental & Applied Economics at the University of Delaware. I earned my Ph.D. in Applied Economics from the University of Illinois in 2017.
