Economics

College of Business

Stephanie Brockmann

I am an environmental and development economist completing the research papers in my dissertation for a PhD in economics from the University of Wyoming. My current research: (1) builds and analyzes spatial bioeconomic models in both developed- and developing-economy settings and (2) informs policy amid spatial processes and externalities. I estimate the consequences of neglecting spatial, ecological, or behavioral components when determining welfare impacts from an invasive species or infectious disease using optimization, modeling, and simulation methods in QGIS, R, GAMS, and Matlab. I have presented my  research in several settings including the highly selective AEA and WCERE conferences. Ongoing agricultural policy research included experience performing field research in developing economies. While at UW, I have been a teaching assistant for macroeconomics, global economic issues, and history of economic thought courses and an instructor for environmental economics and microeconomics. I received a M.A. in applied economics from Western Kentucky University and a B.S. in Business from Baker University. Before studying at UW, I taught nine courses at Baker as an interim instructor and worked for the FDIC as an Economic Research Assistant identifying economic threats and risks for banks in the Kansas City Region.
