I aim to improve natural resources management to advance economic opportunity in low and middle income countries.

I am an economist in the Environment and Natural Resources Global Practice of the World Bank. My primary focus is on forests and land use change, with secondary areas of sustainable fisheries, and water management.

I provide quantitative analysis to support the design of World Bank projects, and undertake research to improve our understanding of the relationship between poverty, development, and the natural environment.

I typically use a microeconomics framework, and empirical methods such as econometric quasi-experiments, GIS, cost-benefit analysis, field experiments, and qualitative interviews, to assess projects, test hypotheses, and develop policy recommendations.

On this site you will find information about my current work, links to past projects I’ve worked on, photography from my work in the field, and blog posts on the ideas that I’ve been thinking about recently.
