Current Research

My research interests include water economics, water and sanitation, environmental health, nonmarket valuation, trans-boundary water resource planning and management, and the impacts and economics of climate change. The objective of my work is to further understanding of resource management at two physico-social scales: the individual- or household-level decision-making level (a microeconomic scale), and the resource-level (spanning from local to regional scales, broadly defined). In the past, I served in the Peace Corps in Mali and worked with the World Bank.
