Currently I have several different themes within my research program. In one theme I am exploring how changing social norms around sustainability might impact not only how we manage forests but the business opportunities around forestry and other resource-based industries. In another theme I am exploring how current markets and institutions in the traditional forest sector are evolving. These include the move away from integrated ownership to models that separate forest management from manufacturing; coupled with that is an investigation of alternative models of forest management; as well as the role competitive markets play as an allocation mechanism.
