Research

I am a co-PD for a 2-year grant from USDA-National Institute for Food and Agriculture to estimate if restoration projects in the Johnson Creek Watershed, Oregon have an effect on the sale price of nearby single-family residential properties.  I continue to work with a team of researchers to finalize studies from an NSF Urban Long Term Research Area grant that examines if environmental conditions have been influenced by different approaches to governance in Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington.  I am also a member of the Clean Water for All research team, a collaboration between UK and US researchers.
