Background and Education

Dr. Steven Wallander is an economist with USDA’s Economic Research Service.  His research focuses on land and water conservation policies and on behavioral responses to policies: the impact of contract structure and auction design on farmers’ program participation decisions, the potential for compensating behavior in response to subsidies for capital investment in conservation technology, and the role of climate and drought risk as a driver of program participation decisions. 
 
Steven also works on experimental economics projects that examine the role of information provision within complex federal programs.  Prior to working on agricultural issues for USDA, Steven worked on residential water conservation, urban storm water management, open space planning, and transportation planning.
 
Steven received a PhD in Environmental Economics from Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, an MS in Urban Environmental Planning from Pratt Institute, and a BA in Philosophy and Environmental Studies from Hobart College.
