Emily Pakhtigian
Student

Education:
BA, Moravian College, 2015

Research Interests: 
Environmental Economics, Development Economics, Applied Microeconomics, Public Health

My research lies at the intersection of environmental, development, and health economics. I examine how households respond to various environmental risks they face—from poor water quality and unimproved sanitation access to indoor and outdoor air pollution, among others. Specifically, I seek to understand how social and household factors mediate demand for technologies that avert or mitigate environmental risk, the sustainability of technological adoption, and the long term health and human capital implications of low investment in averting and mitigating technologies.
