I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at Michigan State University dual majoring in Environmental Science & Policy.  I study how the environment influences human behavior, helps people find joy through leisure, and affects the spatial distribution of economic activity. 

My current research uses novel methods and datasets to value the impacts of climate change, water quality, and congestion in recreational settings. In addition to my work, I enjoy biking, hiking, camping, and playing sports.

I will join the Department of Economics at East Carolina University this fall.
