Environmental and Resource Economics

Applied Econometrics

I am an economist with the US EPA's National Center for Environmental Economics. My research explores issues related to environmental and resource economics, including nonmarket valuation, hedonic price analysis, and benefit-cost analysis of government programs. I advance a new research agenda that examines human-environment relationships using high-frequency market responses to fluctuations in physical systems. A driving force behind my research 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:

Recreation Elasticities of Mountain Snowpack and Implications for a Changing Climate

A Recreation Demand Model for Mountain Snowpack

Overlooked Benefits of Nutrient Reductions in the Mississippi River Basin

Willingness-to-Volunteer and Stability of Preferences between Cities

Benefits of a Fire Mitigation Ecosystem Service

Estimating Demand for Environmental Goods and Services, Now and Later (Dissertation)
