Postdoctoral Scholar at UC Santa Cruz (NOAA Fisheries affiliate)
📍 La Jolla, CA
I'm an Environmental & Natural Resource Economist. As a postdoctoral scholar at The Fisheries Collaborative Program, an organized research collaboration between UC Santa Cruz and NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center, I work with the Future Seas Project team to evaluate the socio-economic impact of climate change on forage fisheries in the California Current System.
In my research, I use empirical and theoretical methods, such as discrete choice models, experimental economics, agent-based modeling, time-series econometrics, and Bayesian modeling, to analyze common pool resources and fisheries management, fisher behavior, coalition formation, and price determination in natural resources markets.
I have a Ph.D. in Resource Economics from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I also taught and assisted courses on statistics, cost-benefit analysis, and price theory. I have published multiple papers in peer-reviewed journals, such as Environmental & Resource Economics, Marine Resource Economics, and Aquaculture Economics & Management.
