Personal profile

Biography

Being interested in natural resources, I studied forest management at the National Agricultural University in Ukraine. After eight years of working in forest management planning, I pursued my doctorate degree in applied economics at Auburn University in the US. Prior to coming to UWA, I had postdoctoral positions at Auburn University and NCSU studying anthropogenic effects on diversity of forest trees; impact of property tax policy, urbanization, and markets on land use change; and analysing harvest behaviour of private forest owners. I am interested in the integration of ecology and economics to better understand the choices humans make concerning natural resources and consequences of these choices for the environment.
