My research addresses the interface between natural resource management policies and outcomes for rural livelihoods and sustainable resource management in the low income tropics. Specifically I am interested in the following topics:

  • The role of environmental income in poverty reduction and societal inequality;
  • Household level outcomes of forest sector decentralization;
  • The relationship between natural resource institutions and poverty reduction;
  • Outcomes from reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) projects;
  • Distributional effects of the structure of forest product value chains;
  • Research design and methods for understanding household level outcomes of natural resource management policies
