Greetings! I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics at St. Francis Xavier University. My research is in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics. I generally focus on issues related to climate change, and my research has involved modelling optimal resource extraction in the context of climate change, as well as impact analysis with a focus on climate policy. I completed my PhD at the University of Victoria, and since arriving at StFX in 2012, my research has been funded by internal grants, as well as two grants from Natural Resources Canada, a SSHRC Insight Development Grant and a grant from Memorial University’s CARE program.

While on Sabbatical during the 2018-2019 academic year, I will be working on multiple papers related to forest management in the context of climate change.
