Clive Chapple

Senior Instructor

I am an Instructor in the Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. I teach a wide variety of courses including cost-benefit, environmental economics, and microeconomics at both the introductory and intermediate levels.

I am originally from England, where I obtained a B.Sc. (Hons) in Chemical Engineering. After coming to Canada I obtained a M.A.Sc. (Chemical Engineering) and a Ph.D. (Business Administration) from UBC.

My hobbies include skiing, squash, and playing the occasional video game.
