Bio/Research

My research interests lie in the empirical exploration, from an economic perspective, of factors that affect individual and group participation in public programs, with a focus on environmental issues. This broad interest has taken two distinct paths, bridging the efficiency and cost-effectiveness paradigms in environmental and resource economics. Much of my work has been directed toward developing improved measures of hypothetical and actual demand for public, environmental goods: with “hypothetical” corresponding to contingent valuation research and “actual” involving related experimental economic research on public good provision mechanisms. On the supply side of the environmental policy equation I have an active experimental economics and field research program on the design of incentive programs for reducing emissions from nonpoint and point sources. A frequent theme in my work is water quality policy, ranging from the non-market valuation of damages to ground and surface water resources, to the design and assessments of non-point source pollution incentive policies, to point-source-to-point-source emissions trading at the watershed level.
