My PhD students are a diverse group from Australia, the United States, and the Maldives. They focus on a broad range of topics, including: Why don’t government decisions better integrate sustainable development? How can management of the natural environment impact financial stability? What cultural, economic, and environmental aspects determine the success or failure of marine protected areas?
Ecological Economics and Policy
Australian National University. This ecological economics course integrates theory and application, introducing theory and background through seminal papers, books, and lectures and application through a problem-based learning approach. Through a project, students work in groups or individually on specific research problems chosen in consultation with the instructor, applying the ecological economics framework to solving these problems.
