I am an environmental economist, energy enthusiast, and passionate advocate for good environmental policy (read: passionate critic of bad policy). I have a Ph.D. from Queen’s University in Economics, and a B.Sc (Environmental Sciences) and M.A. (Economics) from the University of Guelph. My first job out of graduate school was as an Assistant Professor at HEC Montreal, where I spent 3 fantastic years. I left HEC Montreal to move to the University of Alberta in 2006, and I am currently Associate Professor in the Alberta School of Business and I hold the Enbridge Professorship in Energy Policy. I teach courses in energy markets as part of our Natural Resources, Energy and Environment (#nree) programs. You can see my Alberta School of Business webpage here. My research interests span climate and energy economics.
Outside of the Business Building, I am the father of two wonderful kids, a recovering cycling addict, part-time consultant, and fair weather runner.
