My Profile

BiographyContactKeywordsAssociated Projects


I am a Professor in the Economics Department at Brock University.� I am an applied micro-economist. My Doctoral degree is from the University of British Columbia where I specialized in natural resource economics and public finance.� My Doctoral thesis investigated inefficiencies associated with regulatory policies in Canada�s west coast fisheries.�

My current research focuses upon several areas.� In addition to my continued interest in fisheries, I also work in the area of non-market valuation, particularly the use of formats such as contingent valuation and choice experiments. Recently, I have applied these techniques to obtaining values for improved water quality.� A third research area is the application of efficiency techniques to the water-supply sector.

The language and culture of my heritage is passed on to me orally. it's a different way off learning than how I am taught at school. How do I keep my traditional culture alive while learning to read and being immersed in the majority culture?

Reading is the core of learning and staying in school . improving reading skills with young Aboriginal children can open up the doors to future prospects.
