I finished undergrad at Ohio State in 2013 in international studies and geography. I was interested in pursuing graduate studies with ESGP after spending time working with Dr. Brent Sohngen as a research assistant, working on climate change policy and timber market analysis. With ESGP, I am pursuing an MS focusing in environmental economics, working with Dr. Sohngen analyzing the global timber market pricing structures. In particular, examining land use changes, forestry pricing structures, and methods of evaluating wood wealth and non-wood forest products. In my free time, I dedicate myself to rock climbing, both training indoors and outdoor ventures.
