I am an empirical economist that mostly focuses on applications and innovations of non-market valuation techniques. My training is as an agricultural and resource economist by the University of Maryland, College Park. After completing my PhD, I spent three years as a postdoc in ETH-Zurich’s Department of Management, Technology, and Economics. And before joining SLU’s Department of Forest Economics, I spent two year as an assistant professor in CIDE-RC’s Department of Economics.
I have been a learning facilitator of several topics but, if I get to pick my favorite ones, I enjoy facilitating the learning of Statistics, and of Non-Market Valuation. You can see a list of the courses I have covered through the years in the pdf version of my CV.
