About me

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Public Administration and Policy at American University. My research focus is on applied environmental economics and policy, and in public administration theory.

I hold an MA in Policy Economics from Tulane University, and I am qualified member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia and New Zealand.

 

              Research Focus


My current research is focused on a number of interrelated concepts: the role of markets and private enterprise in sustainable development; environmental corporate social responsibility; labor market effects of climate change and environmental degradation; and public administration theory, including public management and governance for long-term sustainability.
