My research focuses on developing and using economic tools to conserve wildlife, especially in migratory landscapes. Before coming to Berkeley, I worked at EcoHealth Alliance on the Conservation and Health team, where I studied how zoonotic disease prevention and conservation objectives can align to promote holistic stewardship of ecosystems that supports both human and environmental wellbeing. I have a Masters Degree from the Yale School of the Environment and a background in natural capital valuations for wildlife species of conservation concern. My interests are interdsciplinary and cover a wide range of methodologies with the underlying goal of building out practical toolkits for conserving species in multi-use landscapes. I am interested in research that pays special attention to the cultural context of wildlife and the spiritual and relational values that people hold for it.
