Welcome

I am a member of the Middlebury College faculty in the Department of Economics and the  Program in Environmental Studies. In 2016-17, while on leave from Middlebury, I was a Fulbright Scholar at Ashesi University College .

My courses in 2017-18 are ‘Introductory Microeconomics‘ (EC155), ‘Environmental Policy‘ (ES211), and a new Winter Term course: “Hate, Love, and Reconciliation in the Public Sphere.”  In recent years I have also taught MiddCORE, ‘Special Topics in Environmental Economics‘ (EC465), ‘Social Entrepreneurship in the Liberal Arts,‘ the ‘ES Senior Seminar‘ (ES401), and ‘Social Entrepreneurship and Social Justice.”

With Liz Robinson and Heather Neuwirth, I co-founded Middlebury’s Center for Social Entrepreneurship. From 2011 to 2014 I was the CSE’s faculty director; I served as the director from 2014 to 2016. (As of July 1 2016, the CSE will become the Center for Creativity, Innovation, and Social Entrepreneurship.)

My office hours in Fall 2017 in Franklin Environmental Center 119 are: Mondays 2:00 – 3:30 and Thursdays 11:00 – 12:30
