My research uses scientific tools to understand the complex relationship between human welfare and the environment. I study a variety of topics, including the economic impacts of climate change, the costs and benefits of air quality, the returns to clean-ups of hazardous waste sites, and the role of environmental quality in fostering growth in developing countries. More generally, this research aims to bring rigorous economic analysis to bear on the design of public policies that govern the environment.
