I am interested in designing and studying policy instruments that help manage the quality of our air and water. I have worked for several years in India on the use of market-based instruments to control air pollution. I also study ground-water, in particular the so-called "food-energy-water" nexus, linking agriculture, groundwater exploitation, and electricity supply to farmers.
Electricity and Energy
I also work on technical and policy instruments that might improve access to electricity for people in developing countries, and create sustainable electricity distribution markets where power is both supplied, and paid for.
Some of my other research focuses on climate change impacts in developing countries, and adaptation to climate change.

Some of my other work, that does not fall neatly into one category.
