Research Statement

My general field is microeconomic theory/mathematical economics. My area of specialization is the theory of exhaustible resource extraction and sustainability. "Theory" here means that I don't use empirical data in my research, just mathematical explorations of exploiting an abstract resource "x". Another interest of mine is the application of the Second Law of Thermodymanics (the "Entropy Law") to Economics (I have a BS in physics). I teach environmental economics (pollution), cost/benefit analysis, non-market valuation techniques, and renewable resource economics at the undergraduate and PhD levels.  I also critique cost/benefit analysis and the Kaldor-Hicks criteria which form its basis, challenging the theoretical basis of environmental economics but also of Law and Economics.

I have done applied work on oil and gas severance taxes, on water pricing and water infrastructure in Utah, and on retirement planning in personal finance.
