I received my doctorate degree in Texas in 1989. As a university professor and administrator (now a retired "Professor Emeritus"), I worked for about five years on tenure-track at Indiana University in Bloomington, and likewise for about a quarter-century at Humboldt State University, now known as Cal Poly Humboldt. At Humboldt I was honored to be chosen as Scholar of the Year. As a Department Chair for 3 different academic programs I led academic stabilization, rebuilding, and faculty searches. I collaboratively designed numerous courses of study, including environmental and natural resource economics, the economics of sustainability, and clean energy economics and policy. I helped design entire degree programs in environmental science, environmental studies, energy technology and policy, business, and economics. As a young PhD I was fortunate to be mentored by Nobel Laureate Elinor Ostrom in my work on common-pool natural resources, and I was a member of her Workshop at Indiana. I have authored a textbook in four editions, many peer-reviewed studies in scholarly journals such as Journal of Law and Economics, Environmental Economics and Management, and Conservation Biology. As a senior professor I led numerous technical studies for agencies such as the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, California Ocean Protection Council, and the California Energy Commission. I worked collaboratively with biologists, engineers, and social scientists on interdisciplinary research projects. My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation and many federal and state agencies, and I have supervised and funded many graduate and undergraduate students who have gone on to leadership roles at universities, government agencies, and the private sector.
