Environmental and Resource Economics

Climate Policy

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, the social cost of greenhouse gases, and benefit-cost analysis of government programs. 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:

The social costs of hydrofluorocarbons

The social cost of carbon dioxide

Advancing the estimate of future climate impacts within the United States

Factors influencing participation in lead service line replacement programs

A market for snow: modeling winter recreation patterns under current and future 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
