I am a lecturer on the faculty at the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University. I am also a faculty affiliate at the Center for Environmental and Resource Economic Policy at NC State.

I teach PubPol 303 and PubPol 304. I am also a co-PI on grants funded by the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality and the Division of Marine Fisheries.

I conduct research on the political economy of natural resource policy and regional economics. My focus has been on the economics of communities reliant on fisheries, water resources, and national parks and forests.
