Simanti Banerjee

Simanti Banerjee (PhD. 2010, Pennsylvania State University) is interest in the economics of ecosystems & conservation policy and energy policy & human behavior. She wants to investigate how individual identities and psychological biases impact adoption of conservation policies and energy efficient behavior. In conducting her research, she mostly uses experimental methods.

She has spent two years at the University of Stirling in Scotland as a post-doctoral researcher. She has taught courses in Energy Ecnomics and Game Theory. At Oberlin College, she is teaching courses in Environmental Economics and Principles of Economics. In her free time she like to read, travel, and indulge in some serious (at least she hopes so) photography.
