I am an environmental and labor economist at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA). I use theory and data to study how beliefs affect decisionmaking, the role of information—especially professional forecasts—in shaping beliefs, and the effect of forward-looking behavior on empirical analyses. Much of my work focuses on estimating damages from climate change, accounting for how individuals and groups anticipate and adapt to those changes.
