My research focuses on the allocation and management of scarce resources, specifically water. Past efforts include studies investigating the impacts associated with water transfers, the relationship between increased climatic variability and the effectiveness of various regional water management schemes, and optimal demand management strategies during periods of drought. More recently my work has dealt with understanding how information affects the decision making of residential water customers, specifically their understanding of their own water use and the rate structures they face. Moving forward I hope to further investigate how continued population growth and climate change will affect the management of resources such as water.
