Jayash Paudel

I am an applied microeconomist, with research interests in environmental and development economics. I received a B.A. in Mathematical Economics from Colorado College, and a Ph.D. in Environmental and Resource Economics from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I am affiliated with the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences.

I apply econometric methods to a variety of topics, including climate change, natural disasters, water pollution, food security and household welfare. My research has appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as Journal of Comparative Economics, Ecological Economics and World Development. In the past, I have worked for Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) and The World Bank Group.
