My research focuses on the effects of taxes and environmental policy.  It is mostly applied theory, with some empirical and computational work.  I have a definite preference for normative topics (for non-economists, this means that I'm more interested in what government policy ought to be than in what its effects are, though obviously one needs to know the answer to that second question in order to answer the first).
