Personal profile


Dr Abbie Rogers is Co-Director of the UWA Centre for Environmental Economics and Policy (CEEP), and part of the UWA Oceans Institute Leadership team. Her primary research interests are in the application of non-market valuation to estimate community values and preferences for environmental conservation and management, and the extension of this information into associated decision-making tools such as benefit-cost analyses. This includes applications in the context of marine, terrestrial and aquatic environments. Ultimately, she is interested in improving the application, understanding and accessibility of environmental economics to improve policy and decision making.
