I am inspired by questions of why people care about others and their environment, and then, of how effective they are at improving the amenities. Therefore, during my PhD training (University of California, Santa Barbara) and early career as a professor, I built a research agenda within environmental and public economics. I focus on two themes: private provision of public goods through charitable giving and environmental policy analysis.
Currently, I am an Assistant Professor at Claremont McKenna College where I teach Intermediate Microeconomics and Public Economics. And I enjoy exploring the mountains behind Los Angeles.
