Environmental & Energy Economics, Industrial Organization, and Applied Microeconomics in general. My current research falls under the broad theme: “Individual Behavior, the Environment, and Socioeconomic Outcomes.” I study how the behavior and incentives of economic agents, such as households, workers and firms, interact with scarce environmental resources, such as air, water and roads. Several current projects relate to households’ awareness of the climate crisis, carbon literacy, and individual action. As my publications indicate, I collaborate across disciplines, including atmospheric sciences and environmental health. My recent work focuses on Asia’s under-studied and globally critical environment and society.
