Current Position

I am a Ph.D. student in the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Basel, Switzerland. As part of the Global and Regional Land-Use Change Research Group, I research the relationship between land use, biofuels, and other fuels.

Fields of interest

  • Agriculture Economics
  • Environmental & Resource Economics
  • Policy Evaluation
  • Economic growth theory

Work in Progress

Fossil fuel subsidies reforms have slowly entered the political zeitgeist. I’m currently investigating how this policy would impact biofuels and the surrounding economic environment.
