I am currently an Associate Professor of Finance at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. My current research agenda includes estimating the short- and long-run health effects of natural disasters; understanding individuals’ and families’ location choices; improving measures of natural disaster damage; estimating the consequences of forgone health care; and understanding the role that the news media plays in post-disaster charitable giving.
