E_BurchfieldI am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environment and Society at Utah State University where I study the factors that influence agricultural adaptation to changing climate.  I am particularly interested in using quantitative tools to explore the distributional dimensions of climate change impacts and adaptation.

I completed my a dual-undergraduate degree in Economics at Clemson University and the Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium, where I also completed a Masters in Economics in 2012.  After my masters, I moved to Vanderbilt University where I completed a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering in 2017.
