I am an environmental and resource economist at North Carolina Sate University in Raleigh.  Recently my research has focused on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the benefits and costs of off-road-vehicle restrictions in Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and various applied econometric issues in the context of non-market valuation, transport, and college tuition prices.  I am currently the Associate Director of NC State's Center for Environmental and Resource Economics Policy and Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management.
