Eyal Frank
Assistant Professor

An environmental economist, Frank works at the intersection of ecology and economics, addressing three broad questions: (i) how do natural inputs, namely animals, contribute to different production functions of interest, (ii) how do market dynamics reduce natural habitats and lead to declining wildlife population levels, and (iii) what are the costs, indirect ones in particular, of conservation policies. 

In his research, Frank uses natural experiments and econometric techniques to explore policy impacts on natural resources and biodiversity.
