I am Maged Elhemri PhD student in the program . My interest is in environmental economics and I'm working with Professor Bob Kling from Economics department on economic activity effect on environmental degradation. I graduated from Economic School at Benghazi University-1997 and got Masters in Finance from Tripoli-2002. I finished another master credit requirement last semester at Ag Econ department in natural resources and environment field but I will submit my paper this summer. I like to read in history, politics and Arabic poetry. In Fort Collins, I met people from more than 60 countries,and that added to my interests, the curiosity to new cultures.
