I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics and the School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary in Calgary, Alberta. Starting August 2023 I am the Departmental Science Advisor at Environment and Climate Change Canada.
My research evaluates climate policies, and examines the effects of government regulation and policy on energy development and the associated consequences and trade-offs. My research interests include climate policy, energy policy, environmental policy, natural resource development, public finance and the environmental consequences of resource development. Current projects are listed on my research page, academic publications are available here, and policy articles are available here.
I serve on the Mitigation Expert Panel for the Canadian Climate Institute, the City of Calgary Climate Panel, WPC Energy Canada's Future Leaders Board, and Global Affairs Canada's Environmental Assessment Advisory Group. I am also treasurer for the Canadian Resource and Environmental Economics Association.
