Research and teaching interests
My interests focus on the intersection of development economics and resource and environmental economics, with particular interest in human-environment interactions and sustainable development. I teach courses in microeconomic theory and environmental and development economics.
My research is based on applied microeconomic theory, but is highly empirical, and often has a strong interdisciplinary emphasis. I use econometric and modelling tools from development, environmental, and agricultural economics. My doctoral dissertation examines the use and management of on-farm natural resources in rural Sub-Saharan Africa, using household-level data I collected in western Kenya in 2011-2012.
