Welcome! I’m an applied economist with research interests at the intersection of agriculture and the environment.

My current research pertains to agricultural groundwater use and water policy. Groundwater management is important for reducing the costs of climate change for agriculture. We expect climate change to drive more variability in precipitation, causing increased variability in surface water supplies and thus a greater reliance on groundwater. I assess the potential of market-based instruments for improving management of our increasingly scarce water resources.
