Anke Leroux

Welcome to my homepage!

I am an environmental and natural resource economist and particularly interested in economic behaviour and problems of optimal natural resource use and conservation under conditions of risk, uncertainty and irreversibility. I use theoretical and experimental approaches and have applied my research on climate change adaptation to inform policy in the areas of optimal land use, biodiversity and habitat conservation, biosecurity and water management.

I obtained my PhD from the University of Cambridge, where I was a Gates Scholar. Currently, I am Associate Professor at the Department of Economics at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. I am an Editorial Council member of the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, Associate Editor of Environmental Conservation and Co-Editor of Environmental and Resource Economics.
