I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at University of Florida, Food and Resource Economics Department. My research fields are environmental and natural resource economics and applied econometrics, with particular interests in the valuation of ecosystem services, water policy, and climate smart agriculture.
My work utilizes a mix of methods, such as classical econometrics, discrete choice models, mathematical optimization, spatial analysis, and machine learning. At the same time, my research integrates collaborations, concepts, and methods from other disciplines, such as agronomy, biology, hydrology, and limnology. Broadly speaking, I am using my training in economics, data science and interdisciplinary studies to study the complex, reciprocal linkages between human actions and ecosystem processes.
