DSC_4701_smallI am an environmental economist in the Department of Economics at Colgate University. My research uses modeling and empirical tools to evaluate and design environmental and climate policies. My current work  quantifies the intended and unintended environmental impacts of environmental policies and, relatedly, the environmental impacts of non-environmental policies. I also work on the design of climate policy in contexts with no clear-cut policy prescriptions because direct regulations (e.g. a carbon tax) are unavailable.
