I am a research economist trained in agricultural and resource economics, with a focus on natural resource governance -- how people organize to manage natural resources. I take an interdisciplinary perspective on resource problems and am interested in integrating social processes into economic analysis, with the goal of understanding the role of natural resources in poverty alleviation and economic development. My experience is in designing theoretically-based empirical analysis of economic governance and natural resource management. Extensive fieldwork in Mexico's common property forestry sector motivates much of this work. With a survey database of 83 representative forest communities across three forested states in Mexico, we can analyze a range of practices that affect market participation, land use, and economic well being. This sector shares certain political, economic and social dynamics with forest access and tenure patterns in other countries in Latin America, Asia and Africa, broadening the applicability of research results.
