Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies, University of Colorado Boulder

I am an Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies, an affiliate faculty in Economics, a Fellow of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, and the Director of the Center for Social and Environmental Futures, at the University of Colorado Boulder. My academic training is a mixture of ecology and economics. I received my Ph.D. in 2014 at the University of Minnesota in Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, where I supplemented my training with graduate coursework in Applied Economics. My research focuses on economic growth futures and their impacts on the environment and society, mathematical modeling of human-environment systems, and political polarization of environmental issues.
