I am an Assistant Professor in Resource Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology, and an Affiliate Faculty in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, and the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies. My research interests are at the intersection of the economy and environment, specifically related to sustainable resource management, consumer driven impacts on resources and climate change, socioeconomic drivers of environmental change, international trade, and renewable energy. My work has been published in the American Journal of Agricultural Economics, Ecological Economics, Energy Economics, and the Annual Review of Resource Economics, among other leading economic field journals. Additionally, I am an Adjunct Researcher with the Resource Economics and Policy Analysis Group at the University of Victoria and an Associate Editor with Forest Policy and Economics, and Forest Science.
I received my Ph.D. from the University of Victoria in the Department of Economics while concurrently working for Natural Resources Canada with the Forest Industry, Trade and Economics Research group, and Environment Canada in the Economic Analysis Directorate with the Environment and Climate Change group.
