I am a sixth-year PhD candidate in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at UC Berkeley. I am also a graduate student researcher at the Energy Institute at Haas, where I have worked for the past four years. I am on the 2017-2018 academic job market.
I am an energy and environmental economist, and my current research focuses on the interaction between environmental policies and market power distortions in U.S. coal markets. I also study the economic impacts of rural electrification in the developing world; the private and social costs of inefficient electricity supply in India; energy efficiency in agricultural groundwater pumping in California; and the design of randomized experiments using panel data.
