CV - Download


I am a doctoral candidate in the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.  My research focuses on environmental public goods.  I study a wide range of environmental policy issues, including multilateral financial agreements for global climate change mitigation, energy efficiency policy, and markets for environmentally-friendly products.

I earned a Master of Public Administration degree from Columbia University and a dual BS from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Here at Yale, I am a member of the Environmental and Natural Resource Economics group.

I enjoy soccer, chess, and concerts.  I also love traveling, and I have been to over thirty countries in my lifetime, including extended stays for study/research in India, Denmark, and Germany.  In addition to English, I speak Cantonese, Spanish, Bangla, and Danish.

Job Market

I am on the job market this year and will be available for interviews at the ASSA meetings in Philadelphia.  More information about me, including downloads for my job market paper and other dissertation chapters, can be found at my website.
