Assistant Professor

I am an environmental economist, working on the behavioral responses of rural households to changes in natural resources, and to alternative policy mechanisms for conservation. I focus mainly on deforestation in international contexts, and examine the implications of both deforestation and forest protection for rural development. I carry out quantitative empirical work, primarily using household survey data, in conjunction with remote sensing data on land cover and other types of spatial data.

Sproles, Eric

Assistant Professor
Earth Sciences
Montana State University

I am an Earth scientist who integrates spatial analysis with process-based science to address the real world questions and challenges of climate impacts on natural resources. Additionally, I bring multidisciplinary experience that allows me to work effectively with scientists, stakeholders, and government institutions on natural resource issues.

I have a Ph.D. in Restoration Ecology (from the University of Western Australia) and a Masters in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology (from Frostburg State University). My research uses statistical/spatial models and field data to improve monitoring systems and better understand the factors that influence species distributions over time - with a management and/or conservation focus. I am predominantly a mammalogist, but I have experience working with reptiles, invertebrates, and plants.
