I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of California, Davis. My dissertation research examines the connection between the management of fish resources and economic development in a rural coastal economy. I develop a bioeconomic local general equilibrium model to evaluate the local economic and biological implications of marine policies in rural Indonesia. My analysis illustrates to what extent these policies can achieve sustainable development objectives.
I am excited to be joining the economics department at Luther College in the upcoming academic year.
