Résumé
My research work has been on the measurement of recreational use and amenity values of freshwater lakes through contingent valuation and contingent pricing. I am currently examining the societal value of public access to lakes.
Justification
On a more general basis, I am interested in the optimal allocation of net user benefits of multiple use waterbodies and in the economics of preserving drinking water sources, both surface and underground.

Terrain de recherche
I will be moving to a tropical country in West Africa when I am finished with my studies and want to become familiar with the economics of water issues in the region.
