I am a professor of applied economics at Oregon State University, and I hold the Emery N. Castle Chair in Resource and Rural Economics. I study environmental and natural resource economics. My work spans multiple areas, including land-use change, natural resource management under climate change, non-market valuation, and the design of environmental policy instruments. My research uses applied econometric and microeconomic tools to model private decisions regarding the use and value of land, with applications towards ecosystem service provision, conservation science, natural capital, forestry, and climate change adaptation.

I joined the Applied Economics faculty at Oregon State in 2013 after spending four years at University of Wisconsin-Madison and four years at University of Puget Sound.  I obtained my PhD from Oregon State in 2005 in Agricultural and Resource Economics.

Other sites that house my research are my Google Scholar Page, my ResearchGate Page, and my ORCID page. Full CV is here.

I am also the editor of the environmental economics section of Q Open, A Journal of Agricultural, Climate, Environmental, Food, Resource, and Development Economics, which is published by Oxford University Press.
