I am an applied economist studying how the market and policy can support conservation. Currently, I am a post-doc at UW-Madison, where I am based in the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies and the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics.

My research focuses on cattle production in the Brazilian Amazon and how market-based and public environmental policy influence deforestation, GHG emissions, and sustainable agriculture. I approach these questions by combining econometric methods, “big data,” extensive field work, and collaboration with interdisciplinary partners in the US and Brazil.
