Assistant Professor. Ph.D., Oregon State University, 2003. Research emphasis is on the economics of endangered species conservation and enforcement of environmental regulations. Past projects have focused on modeling incentives for conservation of endangered species on private land, assessing the effectiveness of endangered species recovery legislation, evaluating the effects of enforcement of the Clean Water Act through private lawsuits, and examining the environmental impacts of biofuel mandates.
Current projects include the effect of private enforcement on voluntary pollution abatement agreements, the effectiveness of private monitoring of water quality by nonprofit groups, welfare effects of biofuel mandates and subsidies, and impacts of wetland rotations for wildlife conservation and farm profitability. Publications have appeared in the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, American Journal of Agricultural Economics, Land Economics, Environmental and Resource Economics, the Journal of Regulatory Economics, and Ecological Economics.
