I began teaching at Augustana in 1996. Courses I have taught include applied microeconomics, econometrics, statistics for business and economics, environmental economics, and ethics in business and economics. Recently, I have been involved in the Augustana field experience program of tours to India. In 2003, I was appointed to the John P. Tandberg Chair in Economics at Augustana. My research interests are focused on environmental and development economics, policy and conservation issues. A current research project involves assessing the economic consequences of green house gas emissions in the agricultural sector.
