My primary research interests are at the intersection of international economics and environmental  economics, specifically exploring trans-boundary environmental issues and linkages across countries.  Much of my recent work focuses on how differences in environmental regulation and participation in International Environmental Agreements can influence hazardous and non-hazardous waste trade flows among countries.  In addition, my research has more recently been expanding into the areas of wildlife and resource management, climate change issues,  and ecosystem services.
