I’ve been working at ISER since 1984. My principal research interests are:
• Economics of ecosystem services, including tourism and recreation.
I used to study Alaska Native corporations, but I have not done this for many years.
My research is typically cross-disciplinary and I enjoy collaborating with natural scientists and engineers to look at practical problems facing Alaska.
I have a joint appointment with the Department of Economics, where I teach environmental economics & policy and natural resource economics.
