I am an environmental and resource economist at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.  Recently my research has focused on climate change and recreation, the benefits of water quality improvements, 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 a Professor in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics, Interim Director of the Center for Environmental and Resource Economic Policy, Lead Organizer for Camp Resources, Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management
