I'm in the Scientist Recruitment Initiative Program and my target position is Research Economist.
I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. (Environmental Economics) in the Environmental Sciences Department at the University of California, Riverside. My research focuses on determining the forest landscape values, estimating the benefits of wildfires reduction due to fuel treatments, and the benefits society receives from forests (e.g. use and nonuse values).
My research will improve our understanding of how landscape characteristics contribute to recreation value and thus our ability to value natural resources in a recreation context. It is potentially relevant for related applications including: trail network design, campground development, zoning and building regulations for rural communities, locating scenic byways and overlooks, shoreline development regulations, and design of location-specific development impact fees.
