Leah Harris Palm-Forster

As an environmental and resource economist, I am particularly interested in how working agricultural lands can be managed to simultaneously produce market and non-market goods and services. Using experimental and real auctions, my dissertation research identifies cost-effective conservation programs that promote coordinated management of row crop systems to enhance aquatic ecosystem services while maintaining farmer profitability. In the future, I would like to continue working on multidisciplinary teams to tackle complex problems facing agriculture and our natural resources.

 

Fields of interest:  Environmental Economics, Experimental Economics, Land Use Economics, Natural Resource Economics, Ecological Economics, Production Economics
