Tony Underwood is currently Associate Professor and Chair in the Department of Economics at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA. His research interests include household energy use and emissions, the environmental implications of urban density and the sharing economy, and the challenges for climate change mitigation posed by global demographic change. He regularly teaches environmental economics, econometrics, and introduction to microeconomics. He also teaches courses in population and urban economics and is a contributing faculty member in the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship certificate program.
Professor Underwood earned his Ph.D. in Economics from Colorado State University in 2013. His dissertation examined the role of demographic change, especially declining household size, in determination of household expenditures and the resulting carbon dioxide emissions. He has since published in several academic journals, including the Journal of Risk and Uncertainty, Energy Policy, Journal of Economic Education, Review of Political Economy, and Ecological Economics.
He lives in Carlisle with his wife, Mallary, their two sons, Evan and Emeric, their dog Desmond, and their cat Roger.
