Bradford Seminar: “Natural Disasters and Elective Medical Services”

Deryugina focuses her research on environmental risk. She has studied the economic costs of both natural and man-made environmental shocks, including the impacts of Hurricane Katrina on the long-run labor market outcomes and survival of residents of New Orleans; estimating the social costs of acute air pollution exposure; and assessing the effect of temperature on the U.S. economy. She also has investigated how farmers adjust their crop insurance choices in anticipation of disaster assistance, how scientific opinions affect laypersons’ beliefs about climate change, and how building energy codes and electricity prices affect energy consumption.

This event is part of the David Bradford Energy and Environmental Policy Seminar Series organized by the Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment (C-PREE) in the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs and co-sponsored by the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI). Deryugina’s talk is co-sponsored by the Center for Health and Wellbeing.
