My published research has encompassed nearly all areas of resource and environmental economics with particular emphasis upon human capital formation, valuation, and mechanism design issues. In recent years I have mainly focused on the joint determination of ecological and economic systems, and the impact of ambient and household environmental states and changes on children's human capital formation.
