I am a PhD Candidate in Economics and Public Policy at Tufts University.

My research interests are in environmental economics, development economics, and health economics, with a focus on the economics of water and sanitation.

My job market paper studies the negative externalities of latrine construction on water quality and health in India. Another working paper investigates the impacts of municipal mergers on water pollution in Japan. Other ongoing research includes misperceived cost and social interaction in latrine usage in India, temperature and latrine investment and usage in India, multinational enforcement of environmental standards in Bangladesh, and religion and water pollution externalities in India.

I am on the 2022-23 job market, and I will be available for interviews on the AEA Job Market and the European Job Market.
