I am a recently tenured, Associate Professor in the Dept. of Ag. & Applied Economics at UW-Madison. My research fields include environmental and resource economics, law and economics, development, and institutional economics.
My research focuses on the role that property rights and governance play in affecting the extent to which societies and individuals benefit from their natural resource endowments. Topics include conflict minerals, oil boomtowns, private land conservation, commercial fishery reform, and the economies of indigenous communities.
