I am a PhD Candidate in UC Berkeley's Agricultural and Resource Economics Department and I am proud to be affiliated with the Energy Institute at Haas. I conduct research at the intersection of behavioral and environmental economics motivated by the broader issue of climate change. I am particularly interested in using field experiments and quasi-experimental methods to answer questions about the economics of new technologies in the consumption and production of energy. 

 I am currently on the 2017-2018 academic job market with my paper: "Dynamic Pricing, Attention, and Automation: Evidence from a Field Experiment in Electricity Consumption."

Research Interests: Environmental Economics, Behavioral Economics, Energy and Resource Economics, Industrial Organization, Applied Econometrics, Climate Change Economics
