I am a PhD candidate in Yale’s Environment School (F&ES), where I work as part of the Environmental and Natural Resource Economics Group and the Seto Urbanization and Global Environmental Change Group. I am interested in the relationship between urbanization processes and sustainable development. My current research is focused on analyzing public policy decisions that jointly affect the growth of cities and environmental outcomes. I currently serve as a contributing author to the 5th Assessment Report (WG III) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
