the basics:

I am a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Economics and Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago. I study energy and environmental economics, with a focus on the developing world. I hold a PhD in agricultural and resource economics from the University of California, Berkeley, and a BA in economics, political science, and German from Williams College. In July 2018, I will join the Harris School of Public Policy as an assistant professor.
