I am an environmental economist with interests in non-market valuation and applied econometrics. I have worked on recreation demand and property value models, as well as a variety of stated preference approaches. My application work has focused on water quality, land use, and invasive species. I am currently the editor in chief for the Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (JAERE), and have a forthcoming PhD level textbook for environmental economics courses.
