Department of Economics
University of Connecticut
I am an applied microeconomist with research interests at the intersection of environmental and health economics.
In my current research I examine the effects of climate change and adaptation on understudied morbidity outcomes, i.e., respiratory allergies and asthma attacks, and vector-borne diseases, e.g., Lyme Disease. I also investigate the economic impact of temperature and violence as well as the relationship between racial diversity and productivity in teams.
