I hold a PhD in Environmental Economics from Queen’s University of Belfast. In 2018, I was appointed professor of economics in the University of Stirling Management School.

My main expertise is in the development and application of discrete regression and choice models in the areas of environmental economics, health economics and consumer economics. My research explores a range of methodological and econometric aspects associated with choice methods.

To date, I have published over 50 papers in international journals and book chaptersand have a Google Scholar h-index of 27. My research is highly cited, as reflected in Research Papers in Economics (RePEc) statistics, where I rank within the top 8% of all economists based on my h-index.
