I am trained primarily as a quantitative interdisciplinary economist. More specifically, I focus on econometrics and the measurement of complex phenomena using multiple variables. This is currently being applied to sustainability measurement, where my doctoral work involved proposing a novel approach to measuring the sustainability of farms in Germany.
As an social scientist with a focus on sustainability measurement, I am drawn to Northland's mission of environmental responsibility and social justice. Being on the shores of Lake Superior is a bonus!
Most of my coursework supports the business program, such as Corporate Social Responsibility and Legal and Ethical Environment of Business. I particularly enjoy courses in economics and quantitative disciplines (e.g. econometrics), as they provide the opportunity to objectively discuss complex social and environmental topics.
