Dr Marco Boeri gained his PhD from QUB and was soon appointed lecturer in Environmental Economics in 2013. His research focusses on comparing different and innovating preference analysis methods (i.e. regret minimization vs. utility maximization or structural choice modelling) at individual and household level. Dr Boeri has extensive knowledge and experience in experimental design, survey development and modelling data from discrete choice studies in health, food and environmental economics. He has co-authored the first applications of the Random Regret Minimization model in both environmental and health economics. He has published in applied economics journals across different disciplines including: Environmental and Resource Economics, Journal of Health Economics, Preventive Medicine, Social Science and Medicine, Transportation Research Part A, Journal of Economic Behaviour and Organization, demonstrating the ability of employing his methodological tool at top levels in different topics and fields.

He has been involved in two projects under the 6th EU Framework Program (EXIOPOL and PLUREL); two projects under the 7th EU Framework Program as WP leader (PURGE and STARTEC) and he is currently leading the economic application of a NERC UK grant (CBESS). He is part of an international network of top applied economists and choice modellers with whom he is collaborating and publishing on several topics, including regret and household choice modelling. He is teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels to students in both environmental and food science and he has supervised honours projects, master theses and PhD students.

He is interested in environmental and resource economics, health economics, energy economics, micro-econometrics, non-market valuation, choice experiments, preference analysis: regret minimization vs. utility maximization, consumer behaviour.
