 Research Interests
Ian Bateman is an environmental economist with a wide array of research interests revolving around the issue of ensuring sustainable wellbeing through the integration of natural and social science knowledge within decision making and policy. Ian?s early research focussed upon examination of the methodological robustness of techniques for valuing preferences for non-marketed, and hence unpriced, goods, in particular those derived from environmental resources such as water quality and recreation as well as environmental problems such as noise pollution. Alongside this work ran an interest in the underlying stability of the preferences being measured with a considerable focus on the extent to which these conformed or diverged from standard economic theory. More recently Ian's research focus has been upon trying to improve decision making concerning the nexus between the natural environment and the economy with a particular interest in bringing the natural and physical sciences into decision making alongside economic analysis. This has developed into a keen interest in working with decision makers in the business sector and policy makers in government seeking to bring the concerns of sustainability, efficiency and equity into conventional decisions. ~
