Pattanayak, Subhrendu, Duke University, North Carolina, USA

Prof. Pattanayak studies how human behaviors relate to the environment by collaborating with ecologists, epidemiologists, statisticians and other social scientists. Towards this end, he attempts to build models to analyze the causes and consequences of human behaviors, and use estimated parameters in integrated simulation tools to help design behavioral interventions (policies). His research has been in two domains: (a) evaluation of ecosystem services (primarily from forests), and (b) economics of environmental health. In both cases, he has focused on socially marginal populations, and examined policies that are motivated by enormous inequities and a range of efficiency concerns - externalities, public goods and imperfect information. In order to fund, design, implement, and disseminate results from this research, he has collaborated closely with policy-makers in multi-lateral, national, state, and local governments, as well as NGOs, academics, and local research organizations in India, Indonesia, Mexico, Nepal, Sri Lanka and the U.S. He is also a Fellow and faculty member of the South Asian Network of Development and Environmental Economists. ...read more
