RESEARCH TOPICS
 
PROFILE
Becky Epanchin-Niell’s research focuses on ecosystem management, particularly understanding how human behavior affects ecological resources and identifying strategies to improve management. Much of her work has focused on invasive species, including strategies to control established invaders, improvement of monitoring strategies, and cooperative management. She also has examined the role of restoration for reducing long-term fire threats and management costs in the western United States and the effects of rural residential development on plants and animals. Epanchin-Niell’s work often draws on econometric and bioeconomic modeling approaches and incorporates spatial aspects of resource movement and use.
