Current and Former Graduate Students

I have worked with many graduate students since taking on my first advisee in 2005. My primary goal in advising students is to help them define and pursue publishable research questions that contribute to the growing knowledge base in environmental and natural resource economics. Most of my students gain experience with applying microeconomic theory, micro-econometric tools, environmental economics principles, and computational skills to the analysis of primary and secondary datasets.
