Research

Main area of research concerns the economic valuation of environmental and natural resources.  Current studies include conservation of rare and endangered fish species and attitudes to biomass, rural landscapes and illegal waste disposal.  Particular interest in developing methodolical and econometric reseaarch issues associated with environmental valuation and discrete choice modelling.  Recent work has focused on preference discontinuity, experimental design, spatial issues and learning/fatigue effects in discrete choice experiments.  Other research topics of interest include spatial econometrics, agricultural economics, transport economics, health economics and agri-food marketing.
