PROFILE
 
Juha Siikamäki's research focuses on evaluating the benefits, costs, and cost-effectiveness of different environmental policy options. His work concentrates on natural ecosystems, such as forests, agricultural landscapes, and coastal ecosystems, and empirically evaluating different options for their management and conservation. Moreover, he has broad interest in public policy evaluations, especially in the context of empirical assessments of consumer preferences and choices.
