Ethan Addicott joined the University of Exeter in 2022 after completing his doctoral work in environmental economics at the Yale School of the Environment.

Ethan’s research program focuses on natural capital asset valuation, management, and accounting. He is particularly interested in evaluating nature-based solutions to global change in coastal areas.

His work combines theory with detailed biogeophysical and economic data to better understand changes in natural capital assets. Ethan frequently works with natural scientists and other economists to accelerate progress toward a sustainable future.

 

Qualifications

PhD in Environmental Economics (Yale University)

MA in Economics (Yale University)

MESc in Environmental Economics (Yale University)

AB in Environmental Science and Public Policy (Harvard University)

Research interests

  • Non-market valuation
  • Natural Capital Accounting 
  • Ecosystem Services

Research projects

Mapping estimates of coastal beach natural capital values for the US east coast -  Ethan is currently working to create a repeatable pipeline for assessing ecosystem service flows from natural assets along the US east coast. 

Challenges and opportunities for urban stormwater infrastructure in the face of global change - Ethan and Dr. James Webber (Engineering) are developing a collaborative working group aimed at finding interdisciplinary solutions to manage sotrm overflows
