My research primarily focuses on understanding how people value ecosystem goods and services, the impact of attitudes and preferences on those values, and translating that information to inform policy decisions. Methodologically, I use survey-based data collection methods, non-market valuation methods, econometric methods, bioeconomic modeling, and legal analysis.
