I am an associate professor in the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, with a secondary appointment in the Department of Economics. My research cuts across energy, agriculture, the environment, and well-being. A native of Pennsylvania, home to the Marcellus Shale natural gas formation, I am interested in the consequences of oil and gas development and the policies governing it. And coming from an agriculturally rich region, I enjoy studying issues linked to farming, the environment, and rural households, in the U.S. and abroad.
