William Schulze is the Kenneth L. Robinson Professor of Agricultural Economics and Public Policy. His areas of research include environmental, public, experimental, and behavioral economics. Recent and ongoing research includes EPA-funded studies of the benefits of air pollution control, including air toxics, and an analysis of the impact of the Superfund program. Current research also includes an NSF-sponsored study of the validity of survey methods for valuing the benefits of environmental programs.
Much of Professor Schulze's work explores environmental values and the development of demand-revealing mechanisms using both the experimental laboratory and survey research. Current experimental economics research includes efforts to develop private mechanisms for funding public goods and markets for electric power.
