Andrew Gulley

Born and raised in Denver, Andrew Gulley went to the University of Chicago to study Law & Economics. There he focused on environmental valuation of acid mine drainage and a bachelor’s thesis on the regulation of hard rock mining on public land in the United States. After graduation, Andrew worked with a mineral-focused private equity group to identify targets for acquisition within the junior mining sector. In 2011 Andrew entered the crossover program between the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and the Colorado School of Mines Mineral Economics program. As a doctoral candidate at CSM, Andrew was awarded a research grant by the EPA and USGS to value ecosystem services impacted by mine sites. During this time, Andrew also worked for Newmont Mining and won fellowships from Resource Capital Funds and Royal Gold.

As a Research Fellow at SDSG, Andrew will draft materials for resource sustainability courses, explore stakeholder interests in artisanal mining, and examine the link between resource endowment and economic development. Andrew will graduate with a PhD in Mineral Economics in May of 2016 and is committed to pursuing his research interests in the mining sector.
