Curriculum Vitae



My main research interests these days are in behavioral economics and environmental economics—ideally, the intersection of the two, for example analyzing consumer behavior in markets for so-called "green" goods. But I am interested in, and have done research on, a wide variety of other topics as well: information policies, oil markets, climate change, common-pool resources, social norms, environmental liability ... anything that involves some combination of applied microeconomic modeling, econometrics, and computer simulations.
