Associate 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 private provision of public environmental goods by nonprofit groups, preemptive conservation to prevent endangered species listings, and the environmental impacts of crop insurance. 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.
