Agricultural and Resource Economics and Policy

I am an Associate Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics in the Ernest and Julio Gallo Management program in the School of Engineering at the University of California, Merced.  I engage in trans-disciplinary research on  complex research problems involving coupled natural and human systems and land management.  My research coalesces around working lands in fragile or vulnerable ecosystems, as well as alpine and arctic ecosystems.   I have been involved in many natural resource projects, from valuing 14 thousand foot peaks in Colorado to bioenergy and to conservation easements.
