I am Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Aberdeen Business School where I hold the Chair in Environmental and Resource Economics.
My research is centred around the design and functioning of environmental markets and incentive-based policy mechanisms for pollution control and biodiversity conservation. Another focal point of my research relates to the interplay between environmental policy and technological change.
I often combine economic theory with laboratory experiments to investigate the performance of environmental policies, and to study economic decision-making in environmental markets.
I am affiliated to the Scottish Experimental Economics Laboratory (SEEL), the Aberdeen Centre for Research in Energy Economics and Finance (ACREEF), and externally to the North Atlantic Microplastic Centre (NAMC) in Norway.
