I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University. As an applied microeconomist, my research interests lie in the intersection of Demographic Economics and Environmental Economics. Specifically, I am interested in examining the effect of extreme climate events on various facets of demographics such as international migration and fertility.
The topics of my research include the impact of destination and origin specific weather conditions on the migratory decisions of agricultural workers’ households, the impact of minimum temperature variations on fertility, and the interactions between perceived air quality and household consumption patterns, and the effect of border enforcement policies on local labor markets.
My teaching experience span courses from introductory macroeconomics, intermediate microeconomics, to a graduate sequence in financial economics. I am actively seeking to expand my teaching portfolio to encompass courses such as environmental economics, labor economics, and applied econometrics.
