I am a postdoctral research fellow at the Department of Food and Resource Economics & the Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate at the University of Copenhagen. My post-doctoral research examines inter-country and cross-country behavior as it relates to conservation, public goods provision and coordination.
My main fields of specialization are Experimental/Behavioral Economics and Resource Economics. My dissertation studies how institutions affect the behavior of resource users by conducting lab and field experiments and by analyzing observational data.
I received my PhD in Economics at the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa, my Masters in Economics at the University of the Philippines, Diliman and my Bachelor of Science Major in Management Engineering at the Ateneo de Manila University.
Prior to doing my Ph.D. in Hawaii, I worked as a consultant for the Asian Development Bank and in the summer of my second year in Hawaii, as a consultant for the World Bank.
