I am  a Regional Economist with an interdisciplinary focus on human-environmental topics. My research encompasses environmental issues, economics of natural disasters and analysis of structural change. In the last years I have been working with input-output analysis, spatial econometrics, integrated economic-environmental-health systems and impact evaluations. I am a research assistant at the Regional Economics Applications Laboratory (REAL) and the Philip R. Israilevich Distinguished Research Fellow for 2017-2018. I am also a member of the International Input-Output Association (IIOA) and the Regional Science Association International (RSAI).
