As a Director in the Economics department at Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), I am passionate about using mapping tools, economics, and data visualization to shape better environmental policies.
My current research focuses on informing the design of effective climate policy and exploring environmental impacts to vulnerable communities. My team and I employ spatial analysis, economic modeling, and other skills to further EDF’s research efforts in order to better understand the science behind environmental problems and their policy solutions.
- Some examples of recent projects include:
- research depicting climate vulnerabilities for communities across the US
- a demographic study and data dashboard populations living near oil and gas wells in the US
- the climate Costs of Inaction research series
- rice nitrous oxide risk maps of nitrous oxide emissions from rice paddies worldwide
- the Fisheries Solutions Center Rights-Based Management database maps.
