I am a doctoral candidate and research fellow in the Department of Economics at Florida State University.

My research is focused on the interaction between property rights and natural resources, and how that relationship shapes collective resource usage and valuation. I primarily use experimental and applied microeconomic methods in investigating the interaction between the institutions of property rights and social dilemmas surrounding natural resource consumption, from the perspective of both public goods and common pool resources.
