I’m currently spending most of my spare time doing what I can to help Ukraine. Here are some suggestions for how you can help. Two specific easy-to-do actions are: (1) share this brief explainer of the war with others and (2) contribute to my fundraiser for humanitarian needs in Ukraine. If you’d like to hear about my efforts to help Ukraine, sign up for my e-mail list (about one email per week).

By day, I am an Associate Professor of Finance at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My research focuses on environmental risk. I am also a co-editor at the Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (JAERE) and at Environmental and Energy Policy and the Economy (EEPE). I also serve on the board of editors of American Economic Journal: Economic Policy (AEJ: Policy). I am affiliated with the National Bureau of Economic Research, the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA), the E2e Project, and the CESifo Research Network.

In my spare time, I work on Academic Sequitur, a tool to help researchers stay up to date on recent research. You tell us who and what you want to follow and we notify you about new papers matching your interests. I’m also working on SKAIPedia, a wiki for social science literature. Check them out and let me know what you think!
