I am an Assistant Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin. For 2022-3, I am also a Visiting Scholar at the Belfer Center at the Harvard Kennedy School. I was formerly an affiliate of the Cornell Institute for China Economic Research (CICER).

I am an applied microeconomist examining the relationship between environmental outcomes, urban and energy policies and inequality. Much of his work consists in trying to think about how polciies and individual decisions have implications for levels of pollution through outcomes home electricity usage or commuting using personal vehicles. I have worked at understanding the economic effects of tolling, subway expansion and carbon capture and storage technology in the US and China.
