I am an economics PhD candidate at the LSE working at the intersection of environmental economics, development economics, and trade. 

My research focuses on nature-based solutions such as forest conservation and afforestation programs. I combine reduced-form econometric methods and spatial general equilibrium models to evaluate their effectiveness within their implementation site and how their effects propagate in space due to trade and migration.

The question I aim to answer in my job market paper is whether locally targeted conservation policies decrease deforestation or merely displace it to unprotected areas in the context of Brazil in the 21st century.
