Before joining the University of Exeter in 2018, Sabrina Eisenbarth was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Oxford.

Sabrina Eisenbarth’s research focuses on environmental and resource economics as well as international trade. She is particularly interested in the sustainable management of fisheries and forests. Moreover, she works on Chinese trade and environmental policy.

Her work combines theory with empirical data analysis, mostly using micro-econometric methods. Moreover, Sabrina Eisenbarth works with randomized controlled trials.

Research interests

  • Environmental and Resource Economics
  • International Trade

Sabrina Eisenbarth’s research focuses on the sustainable management of renewable resources, such as fisheries and forests. Moreover, she is interested in solutions to environmental problems in a globalized world, engaging in research at the intersection between international trade and environmental or resource economics.

Research projects

As part of her research on trade in renewable resources, Sabrina Eisenbarth studies the impact of trade in fishery products on the likelihood of a fishery’s collapse. Moreover, she analyses the adoption of sustainable fisheries management.

Sabrina Eisenbarth's work on forest management includes several externally funded projects. A recently concluded randomized controlled trial explored successful ways of conserving community forests in Uganda. This research was funded through the Metaketa III: Natural Resources Governance Grant and the research outputs were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and in Environmental and Resource Economics.

Ongoing work investigates how the effect of collective conservation payments depends on a group's pre-existing institutions and how those institutions evolve in response to payments. This work is funded by Duke University, Dragon Capital and the University of Exeter.

Furthermore, Sabrina Eisenbarth is a co-investigator on the UKRI-funded NetZeroPlus project. The project investigates how the planting of woodlands can best support the UK Government’s commitment to achieving ‘net zero’ greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
