I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Arizona’s School of Government and Public Policy. I utilize applied microeconomic and econometric techniques to study the economics of natural disasters, identifying current hazard risks and evidence of adaptation to hurricane damages and fatalities across the globe. Using an interdisciplinary Tropical Cyclone Integrated Assessment Model, I quantify the impacts of climate and socioeconomic change on disaster losses. My research informs policy on insurance regulation, post-disaster aid, hurricane warnings, and public adaptation projects. I received my Ph.D. in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics from Yale University. I was previously a visiting researcher at the Euro-Mediterranean Center for Climate Change in Venice, Italy and received a Fulbright Teaching Grant to South Korea.
