About Me

Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the economics department at the University of Oklahoma specializing in energy economics, environmental economics, and law and economics. I am also an affiliated faculty member at the OU Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis.

In my current work, I use applied empirical methods and causal inference to understand the effect of assigning liability for low probability, high severity events on firm precaution to prevent such events. To further this research agenda, I work with detailed administrative data on California’s electricity distribution infrastructure and tools from atmospheric science to develop a causal empirical framework relating a firm’s precaution to the level of liability it faces.
