Hello! I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania. I will be joining the economics faculty at Oberlin College in Autumn 2024.
I am an environmental and behavioral economist interested in the economics of low-probability, high-impact (LPHI) events ranging from individual property damage claims to global annihilation. So far, my research has mainly focused on the behavioral economics of climate adaptation, and in particular the role of mistaken beliefs. In my job market paper, I use Zillow's ZTRAX dataset to examine whether personal exposure to flooding events changes one's homebuying behavior in subsequent years. You can see more of my research here and check out my CV.
I was the main instructor for a behavioral economics course at CMU offered virtually in 2021. You can see recorded video lectures here.
I am the coauthor of a textbook on health economics published in 2013 that is used at colleges and universities around the world.
