Role: CCI collaborative projects, Project team member


I am the Director of the Environmental Program and a Fellow of the Gund Institute for Environment at the University of Vermont.  My research and fieldwork lie at the nexus of conservation, development, natural resource economics and human behavior.  I am the author of over 85 peer-reviewed articles on topics such as poverty, health, ecosystem services and biological conservation.  I am the author of two books, Valuing Ecosystem Services (Earthscan, London, 2008) and A Field Guide to Economics for Conservationists (Roberts and Company, 2015).  In 2013 I was a Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Fellow.  When I’m not working, I spend most of my time enjoying the Vermont outdoors with my wife and three children.
