- Associate Professor , Economics
Trained as an applied microeconomist, my research focuses on jointly determined human and natural systems, and developing policies that will enable humans to better manage natural resources. My current research examines invasive species valuation and management, the effect of the discount rate on environmental policy, and rangeland conservation in the desert Southwest. Prior to my appointment at Trinity University, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at Dartmouth College in the Department of Biological Sciences and the Environmental Studies Program, and an Assistant Professor at the University of New Mexico.
