I am currently focusing on the economic analysis of increasing local water supplies in the LA water basin. Increasing local water supplies is a strategy to make Los Angeles less depended on imported water and more resilient to water shortages especially during drought conditions. I am comparing the costs and benefits of imported water with alternative water supplies like recycled water, stormwater BMP’s, desalinated water and also conservation strategies, while accounting for different treatment types and different kinds of Best Management Practices (BMP’s). I finished my PhD in Natural Resource Economics and Policy in June 2013 from University of California, Riverside, with a special emphasis on California water issues.
