Department Chair & Associate Professor
Dr. Kellenberg joined the Department of Economics at the University of Montana in the Fall of 2007. He has specializations in the fields of international and environmental economics, with particular interests in international environmental policy, the theory of multinational firms, and international trade and the environment. Dr. Kellenberg has published articles in the Journal of International Economics, Journal of Urban Economics, and the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, among others, and currently has research focused on empirical tests of international pollution haven effects and the determinants of hazardous waste trade across countries.
Field Of Study:
Environmental and Natural Resource Economics
My primary research interests are at the intersection of international economics and environmental economics, specifically exploring trans-boundary environmental issues and linkages across countries. Much of my recent work focuses on how differences in environmental regulation and participation in International Environmental Agreements can influence hazardous and non-hazardous waste trade flows among countries. In addition, my research has more recently been expanding into the areas of wildlife and resource management, climate change issues, and ecosystem services.
