Openings (RA, postdoc) + prospective students.

Openings. no current openings, will likely have postdoc and maybe RA positions soon (Fall 2017)


For prospective students: I'm always interested in good new PhD students, and I encourage students who are broadly interested in my area of research (the economic and social consequences of environmental change) and in the stuff I'm currently working on to check out both the Earth Systems Science program and the E-IPER program — the two programs with which I am affiliated.

I am particularly excited about prospective students with (i) strong quantitative backgrounds, and/or (ii) commitments to developing both their econometric and computational skills, and interests in applying these skills to questions about how humans shape and are shaped by their environment. I also welcome students with strong interests in quantitative fieldwork in developing countries, even if these interests are more "development" than "environment" in focus. If you fit broadly into one of these bins, and are interested in either the ESS or E-IPER programs, please get in touch.

Finally, Stanford is a truly excellent place for interdisciplinary-minded students who are also looking for a more traditional grounding in graduate-level economics. Both the E-IPER and Earth System Science programs encourage students to take core courses in Econ, as do I, and Stanford has recently become incredibly strong in a range of applied economics topics. So more "traditional" econ students are also encouraged to get in touch.

Beyond graduate advising, I am always happy to speak to graduate or undergraduate students, regardless of their field.
