A. Patrick Behrer

Post-doctoral Fellow

Center on Food Security and the Environment

Stanford University

I am an environmental and development economist currently working as a post-doctoral scholar in the Center on Food Security and the Environment at Stanford University. I am affiliated with the labs of David Lobell and Marshall Burke.

My research focuses on the relationship between human development and environmental conditions. In particular I examine the causes and consequences of air pollution and the role of adaptation in reducing the damaging consequences of climate change. For the most up-to-date list of my publications see my Google Scholar page or my current work.

Prior to Stanford I received my PhD from Harvard University where I was a Harvard Environmental Economics Program pre-doctoral fellow and a PhD affiliate of Evidence for Policy Action as well as an EPA STAR Fellow. I also have a Masters degree in Agricultural and Resource Economics from Colorado State University and a PgDip in Environmental Management from Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand where I was a Fulbright Fellow.
