Position Title
Affiliated Faculty
Professor of Environmental Science and Policy



I study cooperation problems and decision-making in environmental, agricultural, and public policy. The most famous cooperation problem in environmental science is the Tragedy of the Commons as described by Garrett Hardin in 1968. I view cooperation problems as the cause of many environmental conflicts, and therefore environmental policy is an excellent context to research these issues. Through application of social science theory and research methods, I endeavor to provide practical results and recommendations to real policy and decision-makers.
