Welcome! I’m an Assistant Cooperative Extension Specialist in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at UC Berkeley. As a UC extension economist, I conduct a research and outreach program that focuses on policy issues relevant to California’s agriculture and natural resources. I work with government agencies, environmental groups, farmers, and other stakeholders to better connect Californians with the University’s research.

My current work pertains to the changing regulatory structure of groundwater in California and the potential for groundwater trading. My research evaluates the effectiveness of market-based instruments for improving the management of our increasingly scarce water resources. In general, I am interested in policy-relevant economic questions at the intersection of agriculture and the environment.
