Associate Professor of Environmental Economics and Policy, Nicholas School of Environment at Duke University
Lori S. Bennear's research interests include environmental and natural resource economics, applied microeconomics, and empirical methods. Her research focuses on estimating the effects of various regulatory innovations on measures of facility-level environmental performance, such as pollution levels, chemical use, and technology choice. Recent work has focused on measuring the effectiveness of management-based regulations, which require each regulated entity to develop its own internal rules and initiates to achieve reductions in pollution, as well as the effectiveness of regulations that mandate public reporting of toxic emissions.
