My research focuses on the interaction of economic development and the environment. Specifically, I am interested how improved market access and property rights affect rural welfare and natural resources such as forests, fish stocks and biodiversity.
I teach at the undergraduate level and at the graduate level in the Master of Food and Resource Economics (MFRE) program.
