Jeff Vincent is the Stanback Dean, Clarence F. Korstian Professor of Forest Economics and Management, and Co-Chair of the Master of Forestry (MF) Program in the Nicholas School.
Jeff’s research focuses on the economics of natural resource management and policy in developing countries, with a primary focus on forestry issues in Asia. Currently, his main project is a 3-year NASA-funded project on mangrove conservation in South Asia, which he is implementing with a multidisciplinary group of colleagues at Duke and in South Asia. He has related work on mangroves underway in the Philippines and Thailand. Much of his work focuses on the valuation of ecosystem services of tropical forests. He also dedicates much time to capacity-building programs aimed at young environmental economists in developing countries around the world.
