Welcome to my website! I am a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Economics at University of Alaska Anchorage. My research interests and fields of specialization include Environmental and Resource Economics and Applied Econometrics. My research work lies in the intersection between market capitalizations of environmental (dis)amenities and current mechanisms to curb environmental pollution. I’ve also done work on the extraction of natural resources and its impacts on local communities.

I hold a Ph.D. from Michigan State University, and a M.Sc. from Universidad Católica del Norte, Chile. You can reach me at nmrivera[at]alaska.edu or via the contact form on my CV page
