Her research research focuses on evaluating the effectiveness of flexible environmental policies including information disclosure regulations, management-based regulations, liability regimes, and demand-side management programs. She has applied these evaluations across a range of environmental domains including energy, toxics, and drinking water. Her work has been published in Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences (PNAS), Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, Review of Environmental Economics and Policy, Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, Environment and Development Economics, Marine Resource Economics, Regulation and Governance, Journal of Regulatory Economics, and Nature: Ecology and Evolution, among others.

The book is forthcoming from Cambridge University Press in 2017.
