I am a natural resource and environmental economist working predominantly on applied research at the interface between agriculture and the environment. The majority of my research is motivated by science-based decision making and public policy, and is often interdisciplinary in nature. I have a strong interest in the economics of climate change, ecosystem services, information economics, choice modeling and economic management of spatial-dynamic processes in the environment.

I am currently a Research Economist in the Conservation and Environment Branch of the Economic Research Service in the United States Department of Agriculture.
