Center for Experimental and Applied Economics
Under the direction of Dr. Kent Messer, research conducted in the laboratory explores a wide variety of economic and consumer behaviors and participants receive monetary compensation based on the decisions they make in a variety of different settings. Our major research focuses on land conservation and ecosystem service markets, water quality monitoring, behavioral response to risk, food safety and agricultural policy, and provision of public goods.
