About me

I am an environmental and resource economist with particular interests in feedbacks between economic behavior and ecosystem services. I use applied econometric methods and integrated assessment models to explore the dynamic interactions between economic decisions and physical watershed processes. I work in interdisciplinary research projects to examine the trade-offs between agricultural production and water quality. I also use dynamic optimal control models and agent-based models to study the benefits and costs of adopting agricultural best management practices (BMP) in heterogeneous landscapes and social scenarios as well as participating in water quality trading. I am also interested in understanding household and individual food consumption decisions and their impact on food waste.
