About me:

Currently, I am an associate professor in the Department of Economics at Mount Holyoke College. My research focuses on natural resource management and conservation. To carry out this work, I combine theory and empirical techniques from economics, ecology, and natural history. I teach courses in the economics department on environmental and natural resource economics and econometrics. I also have taught a freshman seminar on bird migration and bird conservation.

Under review:

Gilliland, Ted E. The declaration of a new small-range species increases wildlife tourism. This paper uses citizen science data from the eBird Project to show the causal impact of the declaration of a new species of bird on the number of birdwatchers visiting the home range of the newly-declared species. (Revise and resubmit at Biological Conservation)
