I am a postdoctoral scholar at the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago.

I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University’s program in Sustainable Development, which cultivates an interdisciplinary approach — heavily grounded in economics and statistics — to address the challenges of socio-ecological systems.

I strive in my research to bring together the insights and methodological strengths of multiple disciplines to address such questions, and notably to study the animal farming system. I am deeply interested in the relation between humans and domesticated animals, and its position in the socio-ecological transition. My research relates to 2 areas:

  • The diverse forms of animal farming, from artisanal to industrial, and the tradeoffs they entail;
  • Bridging differences between the statistical methods of disciplines whose collaboration is needed for such interdisciplinary questions.
