Chad Settle’s research covers a range of topics such as the integration of biological and economic systems, citizen suits, bargaining models, the importance of mitigation and adaptation in long-range planning, asymmetric information, demand side management, hyperbolic discounting, and people’s perceptions of losses versus gains. His main area of concentration is post-invasion management of exotic plant and animal species. Recently, his research has extended into the classroom, working to determine if various teaching methods and/or the specific format used to deliver the material to students significantly affect students’ perception of teaching effectiveness or overall class satisfaction. He is hoping to extend this research to include student performance measures once sufficient data is available.
