Tim Haab 's research and teaching focus on environmental economics, experimental economics, and applied econometrics. Recent research has looked at the impacts of social norms on common pool resource management, modeling intertemporal decisions, measuring individual discount rates for environmental projects, the consistent modeling of individual welfare across value elicitation methods, and testing the stability of individual preferences in the presence of external stimuli. Haab 's recent applied research includes measuring the value of recreational angling in Ohio and Hawaii, measuring the value of oyster reef restoration in the Chesapeake Bay, and measuring consumer preferences for genetically modified foods. He has broad interests in the methodology and econometrics of nonmarket valuation, experimental economics, and applied welfare analysis. Dr. Haab joined the department in 2000 after five years on faculty at East Carolina University.
