I am a PhD candidate at Duke University's 
Sanford School of Public Policy, concentrating in economics.

My research lies at the intersection of environmental and development economics. I examine how households respond to various environmental risks they face--from poor water quality and unimproved sanitation access to indoor and outdoor air pollution, among others. Specifically, I seek to understand how social and household factors mediate demand for technologies that avert or mitigate environmental risk, the sustainability of technological adoption, and the long term health and human capital implications of low investment in averting and mitigating technologies.
