Elizabeth CunninghamEconomics and Environmental Science IGERT
University of California, Santa Barbara
I am currently a 1st year PhD student in the Economics and Environmental Science Training Program, funded by an NSF/IGERT grant jointly administered by the Economics Department and the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management. My research interests are in environmental, labor, and development economics.
In December 2004, I received a master's of science in mathematics from the University of Idaho, where I also did my undergraduate work in math and Spanish. I taught everything from pre-calculus to analytic geometry and multivariable calculus at UI from December 2003 to summer 2005. I love teaching calculus, but I wanted to be able to apply my skills to real-world problems.
I became interested in economics in my first micro course as an undergraduate and haven't been able to give it up since. Living in Quito, Ecuador for a semester piqued my interest in development and environmental economics.
My hobbies include travelling, gardening, swimming, birdwatching, hiking, finding great deals at garage sales, and spending tons of time with my husband and high school sweetheart, Nicholas.
