Personal Statement
I'm doing concurrent Master degrees in BEE and Public Administration (with focus on International & Development Administration) at SUNY-ESF and at Maxwell in Syracuse University, respectively. I'm interested in Biophysical & Ecological Economics (BEE), AKA the science of sustainability or sustainability economics, and I would like to make a difference in the world by understanding how we can improve the way that we do economics for a more just and sustainable world. BEE places the human economy inside of the global ecosystems, consisting of nonrenewable (e.g. mostly fossil fuels) and renewable natural resources and materials, on which it depends to exist. By realizing this fundamental embeddedness of social, economic and environmental systems, one comes to the realization that there are limits to growth in both natural and human dominated systems and therefore, as Herman Daly concluded many decades ago, we must aim for a steady state economy that can last for generations to come by maintaining a sustainable balance between the stocks and flows/inputs and outputs of the human economy/ecosystems.

Graduate Research Topic
My graduate research focuses on developing a systems-based understanding of The World's External Debt Dilemma and its Implications for Climate Change and Sustainability through a Biophysical and Ecological Economics Analysis. Recommended books: Steady State Economy by Herman Daly; A Prosperous Way Down by Howard Odum; Energy and the Wealth of Nations: Understanding the Biophysical Economy by Charles Hall and Kent Klitgaard
