I am an economist with the US EPA's National Center for Environmental Economics. My interests involve environmental and natural resource economics and their intersection with environmental policy. I have published in areas related to nonmarket valuation, environmental policy, and the social cost of greenhouse gases. A driving force behind my research and work is a desire to increase our understanding of the linkages between humans and the environment, and to examine how policies that affect these linkages distribute benefits (and costs) to subgroups of people.
Here are some examples of my work:
