I am an assistant professor in the Economics Department at Colorado State University, where I teach courses in microeconomics, environmental economics, and political economy. I teach Principles of Microeconomics using CORE's open textbook and open materials developed with colleagues at CSU. My research focuses on the political economy of the environment, especially the sharing economy and the climate crisis. I have used carbon footprint data to study household and urban economies in carbon emissions, the potential of work hours reductions to address climate change, and the distributional impact of carbon pricing policies. Coauthored reports make the case for carbon dividends and a Green New Deal. My writing has appeared in The Denver Post, Jacobin and Project Syndicate and my research has been cited by the Washington Post, The Economist, and NBC News.
