Current work focuses on valuation of ecoystem services, particularly as they relate to water resources and watershed health. Major projects include:
- Development of the General Equilibrium Model of Ecosystem Services (GEMES) to measure ecosystem services on Western U.S. forests
- National study of water demand and supply for RPA Water Assessment
- Water and economic growth in the Colorado River Basin
- Homeowners' understanding of wildland fire risk and motivations for risk mitigating behavior
- Role of forested land in providing safe clean drinking water
Watershed health, general equilibrium modeling, ecosystem services, water demand and supply, climate change
