Nathan W. Chan

I am an Associate Professor in the Resource Economics department at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. My primary research interests are in the fields of environmental, behavioral, and public economics. Before arriving in Amherst, I was an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at Colby College. 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.
