Nathan W. Chan

I am an Associate Professor in the Resource Economics department at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I study environmental, behavioral, and public economics. I serve on the Editorial Councils for JAERE and JEEM and the Editorial Board for Land Economics. I am not an Olympic ice skater---that's Nathan W. Chen.

I am on sabbatical for AY2022-2023. For Fall 2022, I will be a visiting researcher at University of Oslo's Department of Economics. For Spring 2023, I will be at the University of Texas at Austin's LBJ School of Public Affairs.
