Dr. Boehlert specializes in applied economics and policy analysis, with a focus on water resources and climate change. He has extensive experience analyzing the effects of changes in water availability and allocation, climate change impacts and adaptation responses, the economic impacts of environmental regulations, and the costs of damages to natural resources. Drawing on his academic background in economics and engineering, he frequently employs analytical methods and tools from both fields in his often interdisciplinary project work.
Dr. Boehlert holds an A.B. in Engineering from Dartmouth College, an M.S. in Natural Resource Economics from Oregon State University, and a Ph.D. in Water Resources Engineering from Tufts University. Prior to attending graduate school, he worked as an engineer with an environmental consulting firm and as a hydrology intern with the U.S. Geological Survey.
