Curriculum Vitae




My research interests have been wide and varied over the years. I have written papers in the areas of macroeconomics, non-market valuation, applied econometrics, behavioral economics, agricultural economics and statistics. My recent research has focused on interdisciplinary natural resource questions and the intersection of ecology, epidemiology, entomology and economics. In particular, I have been working on projects related to pine beetle epidemics, ecological impacts of energy development, and the economics of chronic wasting disease.
