SciVal Profile

Biography

Dr. Abbott's work focuses on the conceptual and econometric modeling of economic-ecological systems, with an emphasis on the incentive effects of alternative institutional structures for resource management. His recent work on resource management of marine ecosystems includes the examination of fisheries bycatch in the North Pacific, and the design of a system of tradable quotas to address recreational overfishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Other areas of interest include the valuation of ecosystem services in urban and suburban environments, habitat and biodiversity conservation, and the water/landscape nexus in urban environments. He works closely with scientists in government, such as the National Marine Fisheries Service and has also consulted with non-governmental organizations such as Environmental Defense. Dr. Abbott teaches courses on quantitative modeling, resource economics, and statistical analysis.
