You cannot share your life with a dog, and not know perfectly well that animals have personalities, minds and feelings. – Dr. Jane Goodall
I studied economics with courses specialised in global change ecology and energy. I completed my BA in Economics from Calgary, Canada, before moving to Bayreuth, Germany, to complete my MA in Philosophy & Economics. Previous to this, I worked as a natural energy trading analyst for Deloitte Canada and have taught courses and tutorials on Climate Change, Decision Theory (Game Theory), Philosophy of Economics, and English Academic Writing. I joined the IDK under the supervision of PD Dr. Simone Müller, Prof. Dr. Karen Pittel, and Prof. Dr. Hubert Zapf. My Ph.D. thesis combines economics and ecology to study research framing in economic studies of the environment.

How Economists “See” the Environment: Textual Framing and Research Bias in Current Economic Research on the Environment, 2016-today
Textual Framing and Research Bias in Current Economic Research” is a social sciences research project working under the interdisciplinary umbrella of the environmental humanities that seeks to scrutinise how frames influence and possibly distort the outcome of economic research on the environment. It works with economic research published between 2016 and today in top-ranked academic journals, such as Ecological Economics and Quarterly Journal of Economics.
