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 2021-22 are (fall) ‘Special Topics in Environmental Economics,’ ‘Fighting for Justice,’ (winter) ‘Love in Action,‘ and (spring) ‘Introductory Microeconomics.‘  

In recent years I have also taught the and the Community Engaged Practicum,  ‘Environmental Policy,‘ MiddCORE,  ‘Social Entrepreneurship in the Liberal Arts,‘ and ‘Social Entrepreneurship and Social Justice.”

My most recent publication (Summer 2020) is “Open-Source Learning for 2020 and Beyond” in the Stanford Social Innovation Review. My ResearchGate can be found here

Over the last several years, I have given keynote and invited talks on social change and education at the American Economics Association meetings (2020), Mt. Holyoke College (2019), the Ashoka U Exchange (2018), Groton School (2018), Green Mountain College (2017), the United States Embassy in Ghana (2017), and Westmont College (2016), among other venues.

With Liz Robinson and Heather Neuwirth, I co-founded Middlebury’s Center for Social Entrepreneurship in 2012, serving as its co-director and director from 2012 to 2016. (As of July 1 2016, the CSE became the Center for Creativity, Innovation, and Social Entrepreneurship.)

My office hours during Fall Term 2021 are TBD at the Franklin Environmental Center 119, where my number is 443 – 5761.
