I have over 30 years of research experience as a resource economist and biologist in Alaska. Most recently I have worked on a project intended to help Alaska communities with microgrid electrical distribution systems become more efficient. Other projects in recent years include co-authoring an estimate of the contribution of Alaska parks and wilderness to the state economy, and helping develop a visitor use monitoring assessment for Denali National Park and Preserve. In other projects I studied wind-diesel hybrid energy systems, the economics of renewable energy projects, carbon sequestration, small modular nuclear facilities, transportation system energy use, and Alaska energy statistics. I was Alaska's state tourism director in the late 1990s, and in the 1980s I researched energy options for the Alaska State Legislature.

My principal research interests include energy and natural resource economics, tourism and recreation, and community development. I have worked extensively with small communities, Alaska Native tribal organizations, local, state and federal agencies, and nonprofits.
