Alison Eagle re-joined the Ecosystem Services Program at Duke’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions in May 2014, having served as research director for the Technical Working Group on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (T-AGG) from 2009 to 2011. Her research interests include economic and policy issues related to agricultural land management, especially addressing the environmental implications of crop and livestock production. Recent research has involved the study of policy and economic instruments that can be used to increase the provision of ecosystem services such as biodiversity and water quality.
At the intersection of agronomic sciences and economics, her current work synthesizes and models the environmental impacts of improved fertilizer management for ready application in policy or private markets.
Alison holds a Ph.D. from Wageningen University (Netherlands) in agricultural economics and rural policy, a master’s degree from the University of California-Davis, and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Alberta.
