Emma Gjerdseth

I'm a PhD Candidate in the Applied Economics Department at Oregon State University, with a Masters in Agriculture and Resource Economics from University of California, Davis.

In my research I explore topics related to environmental policy, biodiversity conservation, and land-use management.

My current working papers are on the topics of global elephant conservation; tropical storms, mangroves, and local livelihoods; coastal erosion management in the Pacific Northwest (USA); and deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon.
