I am an Assistant Professor at Farmingdale State College, and my research interests include:
Agricultural Economics, Biofuels, Energy Economics, Environmental Economics, Natural Resource Economics, and Stated Preference Methods.

I was previously a Visiting Assistant Professor at Oberlin College, and prior to that I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Graduate Research Assistant in the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development (CARD) at Iowa State University.

I studied with Dr. Sébastien Pouliot, who was my dissertation advisor. My dissertation research focused on US energy policy, biofuels, the feasibility of expanding the Renewable Fuel Standard, and specifically the demand for E85. The aims of my future research are to combine behavioral economics and agricultural/environmental economics to support analysis of public policies, marketing techniques, and nudges.
