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 2020-21 have been ‘Love in Action,‘ ‘Introductory Microeconomics,’ ‘Special Topics in Environmental Economics,’ and the Community Engaged Practicum.

In recent years I have also taught ‘Fighting for Justice,’ ‘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.

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 Spring Term 2021 are Tuesdays, 3:30 – 5:00 and Fridays, 9:01 – 10:30 (via Zoom) at the Franklin Environmental Center 119, where my number is 443 – 5761.
