My primary research interest is applying economic analysis and environmental psychology to public policy issues, with a particular focus on forestry and marine species conservation. My specialty is quantitive analysis of survey data including: discrete choice analysis, latent class modeling and clustering techniques, and multivariate statistics.


I have taught courses at the undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D level in microeconomics, environmental and natural resource economics, and forest policy. I give lectures in both English and Swedish.

Current Projects

I am currently evaluating the impact of the Forest and Fish Agreement on Small Forestland Owners in the state of Washington as part of the report commissioned in Washington state senate bill SB5330.
