Research Focus

I am an economist focused on the economics of natural resource use and the environment. My research interests include the analysis of fisheries management institutions, the valuation of coastal ecosystem services, and the application of behavioral economics theories to issues related to resource management and energy use. I teach graduate and undergraduate courses focused on introducing economic concepts of sustainability, cost-benefit analysis, and market-based mechanisms for managing environmental externalities.
