About Me

I'm an Economics PhD student at the University of Hawaiʻi-Mānoa (UHM), where I am also a Research Assistant at UHERO. At UHM, I've held both lecturer positions and teaching assistant positions for undergraduate courses.

Research Interests

I have a genuine curiosity for wide-ranging topics (as reflected by my research). I'm intrisically motivated to bring my own perspective, along with some (Economic) empirical strategies, to meet various challenges.

I believe in the advancement of sustainable practices and innovative strategies that preserve scarce resources for future generations.
