I am an applied microeconomist. My primary interests are in public economics, environmental economics, and economic history. In recent work, I have explored how voters demand new policies in response to the impacts of climate change and to changes in neighborhood crime. I have also explored how municipal investments in water infrastructure shaped the development of American cities. I use empirical methods to show how citizens work together to provide local public goods in response to changing economic and environmental conditions.
