A forest economist with a background in forest management and biodiversity, quantifying the amenity value of environmental resources, timber forecasting, forest industry input output modelling, and analysing land use change under emissions trading schemes. I am interested in the bioeconomy, economics of agroforestry, econometrics of international supply and demand of forest products, and modelling ecological decision-making under risk and uncertainty. I teach undergraduate modules in forest management, remote sensing and GIS, experimental design and forest planning.
