I am broadly interested in agri-environmental policies, natural resource economics, and environmental valuation. My current research projects include:
- Flood your neighbors: Spillover effects of levee building. [Job Market Paper]
- Land conservation for open space: Spatial spillovers and the impact of neighbors. [paper available here]
- Uptake and additionality in a green payment program: A panel data study of the Maryland Cover Crop Program. (with Erik Lichtenberg and David A. Newburn) [paper available here]
- Hot spots, cold feet, and warm glow: Identifying spatial heterogeneity in willingness to pay. NCEE Working Paper 20-01. (with Dennis Guignet and Christopher Moore) [paper available here]
Outside of economics, I am interested in various land-use and urban policies using geographical information system (GIS) and spatial modeling. Please click the links below for more details of my past research.
