Born in Nelson, New Zealand, I did my BA(Hons) in Economics at the University of Otago in Dunedin and worked for two years as a Policy Analyst at the Dunedin City Council before moving to Canada for graduate school. After my MA in Economics at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, I completed my PhD in Economics there in 2006. I spent semester 2 of 2012 as a Visiting Professor at the University of Calgary and semester 2 of 2016 as a Visiting Researcher at the University of Waterloo. My curriculum vitae is available below.
My areas of teaching are in natural resource, environmental and microeconomics. I have taught: Principles of Microeconomics; Consumers, Firms and Markets (Intermediate Micro); Resource and Environmental Economics; and Challenges Facing Economic Policy Makers. I have also supervised Honours, Masters of Applied Economics, and Masters of Economics students and a PhD student.
I generally teach Principles of Economics and Resource and Environmental Economics. All course related information is available on MyUni.
