Research Interests

Lyubov (Luba) Kurkalova is interested both in (a) analyzing the impacts of policy and economic factors on forest and agricultural land use, production, and the environment, and in (b) developing the tools - spatially explicit models and econometric techniques - for such analyses. Her research program has received over $9.8 million in extramural funding from USDOE, NSF, and USDA. Dr. Kurkalova has published her research in multiple peer-reviewed journals including Energy Economics, Journal and Soil and Water Conservation, Environmental Modeling and Software, Biomass and Bioenergy, and Environmental Management.
