About: 

Gloria Helfand serves as an adjunct associate professor at SEAS. Research interests include the incentives associated with pollution policies in a variety of contexts, the distributional effects of environmental programs, policy analysis, and a range of environmental issues. Much of her work has examined the effects of different pollution control instruments, especially the use of incentives compared to standards, in various settings, ranging from theory to empirical applications, from agricultural runoff to ground-level ozone. Helfand's interests include the distributional effects of environmental policies, and I have at times dabbled in issues relating to management of federally owned lands. She has found economics a very useful paradigm for examining human behavior in relationship to the environment and for suggesting means to correct destructive activities.
